After walking around Dumbo on a cold winters morning it was a nice to get into the warmth for a little while. The carousel is a lovely old thing. In a world full of technology it's great to see that something like this can still bring a smile to a child's face. We didn't find any queues and they weren't... More

The first time we walked to Jane's Carousel was a Monday and it was closed. It was something I really wanted to do with my son so we decided to return on another day when it was open. It was so worth it! The carousel is exquisite and it brought back so many childhood memories - they just don't make... More

Famous from Instagram and many blogs I follow. But now it was time for me to take a horse for a ride. It was everything and more I hoped for! We were there on a snowy afternoon which made it even more magical. Four ladies who are still girls went for a ride in a tutu and had a blast.... More

What else can you do in NYC for $2? Great views of the City for the adults and a fun carousel for kids. Win win Not an NYC essential but a fun bonus if you're in passing, saddle up.

Kids would love Jane’s Carousel located in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, a beautiful merry-go-round with a view that’s worth its admission price. This carousel has been around since 1922 and a piece of beautiful craftsmanship. The view itself is dizzying, with a panoramic view of both the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge and Manhattan skyline in the horizon. One... More

Jane's carousel was originally located at Idora Park, in my hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. The park burned down in the 1980's, but Jane purchased the entire carousel and restored it to its original state. I was on a bus trip to New York City from Oct 27-30, and this was a must-do!!! The carousel is more beautiful that I remembered!... More

Classic carousel ride that is fun for all ages! $2 per ride. Located by the docks with a great view of the city skyline. Great photo op with the skyline and/or carousel.

Visit here for great views of the Brooklyn, Manhattan and FDR bridges from either side. Right by the Carousel is a cute park where runners, dogs and family mingle on the weekends. Around the corner are neat breakfast places so well worth the walk across t he Brooklyn Bridge. Great ambiance.
