The next big event is the Holiday Train Show, opening November 21, in the Haupt. As Untapped Cities wrote in 2013: this is “a must-visit for architecture buffs, as well as kids.” Most of NYC’s architectural landmarks have been reproduced, constructed from plant parts by artist Paul Busse, who builds in the Haupt what Todd Forrest calls “a universe all its own.”
