    We would love to being our girls to the NYBG to start a holiday tradition of visiting each year. It’s so peaceful there. 🙂

  • Carolina

    I’m looking for some things to do with my girls this holiday season. I hear it is spectacular.

  • My son LOVES trains. He is 13 now and is building his own layout in his room. We have been going to the train show since he was very little and it is his favorite event of the year. If we won the 4 pack we would be able to bring some of his friends so he can show them the place he first began to love trains.
