Weekend Field-Trip: The New York Botanical Garden

Posted by The Sill on

Tomorrow marks the 1st of December and we're already feeling the early on-set of cabin fever. Looking to stroll around out of the cold? The Victorian-style Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is open year-round - including these chilly winter months. 

The glasshouse, circa 1902, is home to the permanent exhibition A World of Plants, which allows visitors to stroll through eleven distinct habitats (from cactus-filled deserts to tropical rain forests), while learning about Earth's indispensable plant life.

Don't forget to marvel at the Conservatory's Holiday Train Show, on now through January 13th. The holiday exhibit features more than 140 scaled iconic buildings made of natural materials, thousands of twinkling lights, and a quarter-mile of train track with large scale model trains. New this year, keep an eye out for the replica of Macy's flagship location - "the miracle on 34th Street" - which greets visitors as they enter the conservatory!
