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.

  • Visited in middle of June. Quite hot with only breeze and fans to keep you cool. Refreshing to know they only charge $2 per adult for a 2 min ride. Worth the experience and view.
  • Nice place to visit. If you would like to surprise a new date, bring her here. She may give you a nice smile. You also have a few places to choose from for eating that are close by. In all this spot is recommended.
  • Lovely surprise on the river bank. It's a beautiful, big, old carousel, and since it's enclosed it was a great find on a cold, wet day. I was also pleasantly surprised at how family friendly the pricing is; $2/person and 1 adult goes free with a small child. We rode it 4 times as a family and my daughter loved every minute!
  • I felt more beautiful to see Manhattan here. really good view
  • We were invited to our friend's daughter birthday party last Saturday. They particularly chose this place over others for its kid friendly atmosphere. Staff was professional and friendly as well. My husband took a ride on the historic Jane's Carousel and I must tell, he looked very happy. It was fun.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
