Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn

4.5
#4 of 14 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.

  • The carousel was restored beautifully! Cheap to take a nostalgic ride - $2. Will ride it again when I get back to NYC for certain.  more »
  • Not the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge left to woo a pretty scenery that cannot be the only visitors to the Dumbo here comes too which was pretty cold and the wind just where rivers.

  • Carousel drive, who has not loved as a child? Jane's carousel is great, has horses and carriages, which are also suitable for adults - so nothing more than going on! When the carousel is a real music organ with timpani and trumpets accompanied the adventure. Who discovered not the child head in there and doesn't, which isn't going to help. Still operation in any weather, this thanks to the elegant glass box that has been placed according to the design by architect Jean Nouvel in.

  • Love this carousel! It's relatively slow so even the most motion sick or the youngest child can go on this. The views are unbeatable. With the walls open, the breeze off the river is lovely! The ride is a decent length. The best part - only 2 dollars a ride!
  • Very nice place for pics and for just sitting around on the rocks or benches. Great views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. My only complaint is where there is water there is rust... and I hate seeing rust. I’ve traveled to countries where I rarely see Rust but in NYC it’s everywhere... even here. Oh yeah... the carousel is very festive. Love it!!!
  • Old in a new way. Jane’s carousel brings everything kiddos love ! Fantastic view of the Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan. The old school carousel bring anyone back to his childhood. The staff is very courteous and helpful with kids. Going there is creating memories!
  • Quaint, old time carousel in a beautiful location just under Brooklyn Bridge and right across from lower Manhattan. You get a great view of the island skyline while spinning about on the musical carousel. Tickets are inexpensive, and it's a great way to spend an afternoon with family and children. A must-see when walking about in Brooklyn!
  • Mesmerizing view of the city as you ride a classic carousel. Lines go pretty quickly. Rides are only $2. Great place for a family outing.
