Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn

4.5
#2 of 12 in Fun & Games in Brooklyn
Jane's Carousel is a completely restored historic Carousel made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC #61) in 1922. It is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses, and 2 superb chariots. The wood carvings, often attributed to John Zalar and Frank Carretta, are among the finest of their kind. In addition, the scenery panels, rounding boards, crests, center pole and platform are all original to the Carousel. It was the first Carousel to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Friends of Janes Carousel is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization.

  • Is a historic carousel is a carved wooden horse-drawn carriage, but was finished today's sales. The figure does not have, surrounded by iron bars and spotlight on horses who looked fantastic.

  • Every carousel worth, the kids have fun too. Adults cannot sit on the horses that go up and down, just fixed.

  • It is a carousel more, not of the most beautiful and best-preserved in all New York. Where is your location and be surrounded by incomparable views of Manahattan in an area of beautiful parks of Brookynn. Sometimes when you feel in one paradise all you sounds like paradise and Jane s Carousel may be that case or help a little remember childhood, not much more.

  • Amazing place. Stunning views, gorgeous carousel and cheap! MUST visit. If you are going to NYC, this is a great, cheap thing to do. Shake Shack is close by or take a picnic. Also Brooklyn Roasting Company is close if you’re a coffee fan. Huge playground nearby. I cannot speak highly enough of this area.
  • Recreation place for the public. The place has bathroom and disabled access. Beautiful place, well organized and clean. One of the most popular toys there is the Carrosel. It has next to the place a small mall of varieties. Finally the place has a beautiful view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Really a beautiful place to stroll as much in group as in family.
  • Great location in DUMBO / Brooklyn Bridge Park area. We did not have to wait to buy tix or to ride during our visit on a holiday Monday in February. My son really enjoyed the ride but it went pretty fast. The carousel itself was really nice though a few horses were covered for repairs. Worth a visit!
  • Nice little gem in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn! Carousel on the edge of the East River with a view of Lower Manhattan across the river! Perfect for a quick outing with the kids. Last time there they had a guy making little balloon animals for the children!
  • Beautifully restored, fully enclosed (which is great in the winter), and a very reasonable $2 a ride. I've been here twice--once as part of an office outing and once with my 4 year old niece. In both cases, everyone invomved had a fantastic time. Be prepared on the weekends for lots of birthday parties.
