Zoolander Sighting at NYBG Train Show

We saw this on TheBronxRocks.com's Simone Davis' Facebook status and just had to share it:
Ben Stiller in The Bronx! 5 feet in front of us at The Holiday Train Show at The New York Botanical Gardens!
Simone reports that Zoolander was there this Sunday with his wife (Christine Taylor) and kids, and was quite friendly and even posed for pics with some eager fans.

My general aversion to people caused me to miss this awesome sighting. We were at the Gardens Sunday, but I refused to check out the train show because it's absolutely mobbed on the weekends. Damn it!

However, we did get to see some much less cooler recognizable figures the night before at the Garden's annual Tree Light Ceremony. Ken Singleton, the Yankees announcer, was there, along with several pols including Senator Jeff Klein, Congressman Jose Serrano, Senator Jose Serrano, and Assemblyman Carl Heastie (whose tardiness seemed to hold up the festivities for a few annoying moments).

Damn! I'll take Ben Stiller over Bronx politicians any day...oh well.
