I was very excited to hear about Jane's carousel before a trip to NY, and the attraction did not disappoint. It's wonderfully restored, and looks beautiful near the water. A real treat. Suitable for adults and for kids, it's a must if you are in the area.

We walked over the Brooklyn Bridge to see this carousel. Well worth the trip - the carousel,is beautifully restored and it in in a glass house. It is $2 each to ride - totally worth it. Beautiful views of the river and city while you ride. Afterward, explore the rest of the park. Check the Jane's Carousel website before you... More

If you are planning to go to Brooklyn Bridge, this is a definite must go. It is probably ~15 minutes walk away from the Brooklyn entry/exit at the bridge. The view from this place is amazing. Be sure to take a ride on the carousel, it is open to adults and kids. Ride will only cost you $2. Anyone who... More

Beautifully restored carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the East River. The carousel is enclosed in plexiglass so riding is great in any type of weather. Beautiful views of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges while riding. Who says a $2.00 ride can't make an adult feel like a kid again!

What a thrill, we felt like children again as we paid our $2.00 and rode the beautiful carousel! The views from here are incredible and on a warm day one can sit by the water side and gaze at the NYC skyline for hours! It's a must do after a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge!

After walking around Dumbo on a cold winters morning it was a nice to get into the warmth for a little while. The carousel is a lovely old thing. In a world full of technology it's great to see that something like this can still bring a smile to a child's face. We didn't find any queues and they weren't... More

The first time we walked to Jane's Carousel was a Monday and it was closed. It was something I really wanted to do with my son so we decided to return on another day when it was open. It was so worth it! The carousel is exquisite and it brought back so many childhood memories - they just don't make... More

Famous from Instagram and many blogs I follow. But now it was time for me to take a horse for a ride. It was everything and more I hoped for! We were there on a snowy afternoon which made it even more magical. Four ladies who are still girls went for a ride in a tutu and had a blast.... More

What else can you do in NYC for $2? Great views of the City for the adults and a fun carousel for kids. Win win Not an NYC essential but a fun bonus if you're in passing, saddle up.
