Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn

4.5
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.

  • This is the most beautiful carousel I have ever seen. My 4yo son loved it so much. Only $2 a ride too. We were there in late Fall and it is only open a few days a week, so we had to go back another day after finding it closed the first day we went to visit it. Such a stunning location and very delightful carousel ride for all the family.
  • Soooooo fancy! You can take a free ride, and most of them are Kids and parents. It’s definitely a beautiful building with a fantastic view of the bridge and Manhattan. Also the neighborhoods walkable and deserve you exploration!
  • Excellent views! And it is just $2 for a ride, which includes one adult+one kid! A must try for tourist and kids.
  • Great for kids and it's right on the water with fantastic views. Tickets are super cheap at $2 per ride.
  • Nice view. Great for a summer picnic. Best pizza place- Giovani’s in walking distance.

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.
