View for days

Although it was closed when I was here, the views from here at night is absolutely amazing. It is probably my favourite view of lower manhattan skyline at night.

Having grown up in Youngstown,Ohio I spent summers at Idora Park, the local amusement park and rode many times on the merry-go-round. Now called Jane's Carousel, riding again was a real walk down memory lane for us. After a fire in 1984 destroyed the park, the carousel was purchased, moved to Brooklyn, and painstakingly restored. This is truly a work... More

My daughter has talked about this forever and this was my first time to visit Jane's Carousel. The tickets were only $2.00 each! We didn't have to wait long in line at all. Got on a horse and away we went! The ticket booth was a little hard to find. It is inside in the corner of the glass house.... More

Jane's Carousel is just beautiful! It was built in 1922, has been restored, and is located in a glass pavillion on the East River in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. It is located between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges in front of St. Ann's Warehouse. The views into lower Manhattan and of the two bridges from this area are spectacular!

Old school fun in a great neighbourhood Dumbo. Next to it is a great park. Although my kids had a laugh (12 and 10 years) I think its more under 10 years old. The carousel looks beautiful with a gorgeous back drop Brooklyn bridge. I would like suggest to go there to explore the neighbour and not only go for... More

It looked just like any other carousel to my untrained eye. I couldn't see why this was in the guidebook. Come if you love carousels or architecture, if it's special to you in some way. Otherwise it's not worth the trouble.

Beautifully restored carousel with the added bonus of being housed in a glass paviliion, right on the river between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in Brooklyn Bridge Park. We attended an evening wedding there (bride and groom rented it out for the night). Stunning vibe as the sun set and the lights of the bridges and buildings twinkled their way... More

This carousel has been nicely restored since it's days at Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio. Everything looks and sounds very nice. Well worth a visit if you are interested in these classic carousel's. Fully working Wurlitzer organ and horse movement.

We went though the carousel park and the carousel on our way to Brooklyn bridge. The carousel is very beautiful, and very nice to see even on days when it is closed (it is surrounded by a glass pavillion). Would go here exclusively for the carousel, but if its on your way to something else you should stop by.
