There are several holiday train shows around the city, but I was totally caught off guard by the train show at Grand Central Station. It is very small and unassuming, but it was amazing! We visited last year after my sister's friend Lindsay (shout out to my Brooklyn friend!) highly recommended it, and I'm so glad that we went.
There's something incredible about seeing your life in miniature. The streets of Manhattan, the subway, the Metro North trains stopping at the platform... it's just wonderful.
Grand Central Station is amazing at Christmas, so definitely go grab some Junior's Cheesecake in the concourse and then check out the train show. Did I mention that it's also free? Details HERE
