Sights & Attractions

Jane's Carousel is a magical sight on the East River, appealing to both children and adults as a dreamlike addition to Brooklyn Bridge Park. This historic gem was made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1922, and presided over Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio before being auctioned off in 1984. Artist Jane Walentas led its careful restoration. Totally rewired, the Carousel now dazzles with 1200 brilliant lights. The carousel has retained its classical design, with three rows containing 48 exquisitely detailed horses and two chariots. The scenery panels, center pole, and platform are all original to the twenties version of the carousel, infusing it with the charm of a bygone era. The pavilion designed by architect Jean Nouvel to house the attraction stands in contrast to the carousel’s old-world design, lending a shot of modern architecture to the traditionally ornate. It updates the carousel’s classic look. Jane's Carousel will delight children, as well as visitors from around the world, as a one-of-a-kind attraction for many generations to come.
