Located in an all-glass building, this historic carousel has been restored to all of its former glory and looks and sounds and rides great! Beautifully situated nearly underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, this attraction is a great place to bring the kids for some fun, than spread out for a picnic on one of the lawns that surround the carousel.

This is a beautifully restored carousel at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Protected from the elements, it is one of the nicest carousels I've seen. The striking views of the bridge are an added bonus.

Seeing the carousel in all of its glory brought back memories of my youth. It was nice to see young children and adults enjoying this little bit of Youngstown again.

We came here while babysitting our granddaughter and had the most fantastic time. We are visiting from Australia. We were thrilled with the meticulous restoration of the carousel and the most amazing views of Manhattan as we rode the carousel. Our grandaughter was entranced by the whole experience. Would thoroughly recommend this for anyone with small children. Their moto was... More

2 dollars a ride. Wow and what a view and Papi gets to ride with the granddaughter at that price too. How much fun. Three rides on horses that went up and down, one stationary and then in a buggy. Absolute must if visiting New York just under the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn side.

It was closed for the season when I went, but it is in glass building so you can get a good look. It is an amazing wooden carousel saved from destruction and restored by one woman.

One of the most picturesque carousels in the world with with the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in the background accompanied with the downtown Manhattan skyline. So much fun for the kids (and adults) for $2. I love this carousel! It's also a perfect place for some photography. Highly recommend it if you are visiting DUMBO
