It’s easy to go from thinking New York—sorry, Disney—is the most magical place ever to taking for granted even its most majestic sights. Take your tourist friends and rekindle your love of the Big Apple by seeing it transformed at the Holiday Train Show under the lights of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden. Model trains travel over a quarter mile of track to visit replicas of more than 140 landmarks like Yankee Stadium, Radio City Music Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the New York Public Library on 42nd Street and the Brooklyn Bridge made from natural materials such as bark, twigs, stems, fruits, seeds and pine cones by Paul Busse and his team at Applied Imagination.

New York Botanical Garden, 2900 Southern Blvd., Bronx, 718-817-8700, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., $20 (adults), $10 (kids), advanced reservations recommended, runs through Jan. 12
