A 48 horse carousel constructed in 1922 for Idora park in Ohio, but was sold and moved to Brooklyn in 1984. It was restored and reopened at Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2011.
DUMBO (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is an upscale residential and commercial neighborhood, known for attracting tech startups and as the headquarters for Etsy and West Elm. Many of the former industrial buildings have been converted to luxury residential lofts and office spaces. Residents and tourists flock down to Brooklyn Bridge Park for a ride on the famed Jane’s Carousel, a 1922 merry-go-round painstakingly restored, and for views of the water and twinkling bridges against the Manhattan skyline. You can’t go wrong with either of the famous coal-stoned pizzas at Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s (famed neighbors and rivals). Make sure to stop by the PowerHouse Arena to browse through their well curated book and art selection.
