Jane’s Carousel opened to the public on September 16th in Brooklyn Bridge Park at the Empire Fulton Ferry. The Carousel is named after Jane Walentas, wife of DUMBO developer David Walentas, who bought the old carousel for $385,000 in 1984 from an auction. The Carousel was restored, donated to the city and is now housed in a spectacular Pavilion designed by Pritzker Prize winning French architect Jean Nouvel.
Beautiful Carousel and the park with an amazing view of the Manhattan Skyline, Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
The carousel was built in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan company of Germantown.
