We have seen a number of Carousel's, but never before in such a great setting. Protected in it's own glass case and with the amazing Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan backdrop, the clear pleasure being enjoyed by so many was infectious. The restoration and maintenance team are to be congratulated on this addition to the riverside scene. We had a great... More

For those who love nostalgia this attraction is a must. Located at DUMBO (Down under the Manhatten Bridge Overpass) the experience is quite surreal. As you ride round on the Casousel you face the little bay on the Brooklyn side of the Hudson and then you face the spectacular Manhatten skyline which is the Battery and the Financial Centre. And...

We came over to Brooklyn especially to do this. Great view of the hudson river, bridges, and the downtown. 2-3 minute ride with a classically restored carousel. Except for the blood curdling screaming kids in the carriage behind us with parents that encouraged it, this was a pleasant and reminiscent ride into the past.

We visited the carousel during the heatwave in the end of July. Walking from High Station on A train was dreadful. It was scorching..... speechless. But when we got there, our dried up body got charged with all the excitement! We two adults waited on line for a few minutes! Literally we became kids again!! The two dollars ride was... More

This carousel is just gorgeous, infact it's beautiful in every direction, wether looking at the carousel itself or looking out across the water to the beautiful bridges and the spectacular Manhattan skyline. We took our twin toddlers thinking it would be one of those things they would love, and they did, but if I'm being honest I think we enjoyed... More

Kids really enjoyed this. They rode it twice. I even toda it once and it was fine. It is only $2 so it's a cheap thing that will make the kids and most adults happy too.

When Ellis Island welcomed its European immigrants it included artisans who took the skills they had used to shape cathedrals to carve wooden horses that delighted children. Take the 32nd Street ferry to Brooklyn where $2 will give you a ride back in time in a glass enclosed carousel atop a beautifully curated painted pony. A family gem or for... More

There can't be a carousel any place in the world with a more beautiful setting than this one in Brooklyn. It's right on the water with outstanding views of Manhattan. The 1920s carousel is meticulously restored and children (and adults) love it. I liked how much open space there is around it ... much more room for the adults watching... More

We passed by the carousel on our visit to Brooklyn. The carousel is very pretty and situated right on the water, very picturesque. Also it's only 2.00.
