Jane’s Carousel

This is Jane’s Carousel.

It currently resides at 56 Water Steet in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The backstory is such that the Carousel was purchased during a bid process in Youngstown, OH. It wasn’t in great shape. Jane Walentas bid on it, won, and spent many, many hours restoring the Carousel to its original (and some say much better) glory. Unfortunately, the Carousel is sitting in a warehouse right now and there isn’t enough room for kids (and adults) to safely ride it. Bummer. But there are plans in the works to relocate it (yet again) to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, on the East River. We’ll see if it opens in the planned December 2010 timeframe.
