New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Boulevard)
Varies by day; $23-$30/adults, $10-$18/ages 1-12, $20-$28/students & seniors, free ages 1 & under.
See a sing-along performance with Thomas the Train where kids help Thomas discover the steps to grow a beautiful garden and take a photo with the Really Useful Engine. Not a great work of performance art but a fun addition to the Holiday Train Show for Thomas fans. Note that the auditorium is a bit of an outdoor walk from the main train show.
