Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn

(4.5/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
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.

  • We were married at the carousel April 23 and it was incredible!! We rented the carousel after hours and the view and atmosphere are absolutely magic. Carousel staff were very accommodating and helpful in making our day perfect. The carousel will always be an extra special place for us.
  • A modern marvel: I'll spare you the details, read the webpage or wikipedia post: soo much intricate work went into restoring this carousel, I just appreciate it as a work of art. Plus good location and destination if your just visiting new york. And even if your a New Yorker, a public art display worthy of your (at least my) attention
  • Almost 100 years old and it only cost $2 for a ride! The view is beautiful in between 2 iconic bridges, the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. Highly recommends the ride for child or adults. Don't ask my age, I ride it. It was magical!
  • Looks magical. 5 only for this. Believe if I try carousel itself one day I will add 5 more. This is the place that makes you feel like a child. And view around is gorgeous. It just decorates it even more!
  • Since we moved to Brooklyn this has become my daughter's favorite spot. The pavilion is incredibly well designed and built. The carrousel is completely restored and it has a breathtaking view of the city.
