Some holiday activities are better left till after. We country mice highly unrecommend the New York Botanical Garden Train Show during peak season, but go now if you like trains, tiny special worlds, humidity, and perfect miniature replicas made from bark and twigs by krazy nutters — it’s a trip. This year’s includes the original Penn Station and Yankee Stadium, Radio City, Macy’s, St. Pat’s, The New York Public Library, and a bunch of bridges. Remarkable!
Highlight: two B&T men were thoughtfully analyzing in silence one of the more ornate mini-buildings, say, 2 feet high. Finally one guy goes to the other (insert The Sopranos accent here):
“It’s like there’s so much DE-tail, you can hoddly see it awl.”
I wept in gratitude.
