Overview

View the star fascination of the north finish of Brooklyn Bridge Park: a vintage merry go round worked by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1922. In 1984 it was bought by Dumbo craftsman Jane Walentas, who went through the following two decades loyally reestablishing the vintage paint conspire on the luxurious, cut wood components before the merry go round took up its present plum spot underneath New York’s two most shot extensions.

The merry go round has 48 ponies, two chariots, and 1200 lights, and is the first of its sort to be set on the National Register of Historic Places. The working fortune is housed in a reasonable acrylic structure planned by Pritzker Prize-winning engineer Jean Nouvel.
