“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Whenever I hear of anyone going to Brooklyn Bridge Park I say, 'Don't forget to go on the carousel.' I love Jane's Carousel, it's so beautiful and well looked after, it just feels so....happy! Plus the rides aren't terribly expensive, and are well worth the money!

“A Piece of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Beautiful restored carousel. Its enclosed in a glass box. If you put money in the change machine for the ride, gold coins will be your surprise. You can see the Manhattan skyline, boats of all sizes, the Brooklyn Bridge and many interesting shops, restaurants and Bars. The Carousel is located in DUMBO

“Who doesn't love a carousel?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can't miss the large glass enclosure that houses this carousel right under the Brooklyn Bridge. We were there on a Wednesday in August so there was no line and no fighting over prime seating. My mom, sister in law, and I took my 9 month old and 22 month old nephew on their first carousel, and it was a great place to do it! It costs $2 to ride and the kids were free because they were under 3 I believe. Pretty carousel brought back after Hurricane Sandy, nice treat for all of us! Grandma even bought the kids the t shirt :)

“Ruins the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Its a nice relic and good all around except it ruins the view of the Brooklyn bridge. It was a long haul getting it there and it is a cool old thing.
