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.

Surprisingly quiet and not at all busy, which was a nice change of pace from being in the city for 3 full days. The carousel was beautiful, inexpensive and there wasn't anyone else on it but us! We were able to take pictures, enjoy the view and be sheltered from the slightly windy day of throwing rocks into the bay... More

Although it was closed when I was here, the views from here at night is absolutely amazing. It is probably my favourite view of lower manhattan skyline at night.

Having grown up in Youngstown,Ohio I spent summers at Idora Park, the local amusement park and rode many times on the merry-go-round. Now called Jane's Carousel, riding again was a real walk down memory lane for us. After a fire in 1984 destroyed the park, the carousel was purchased, moved to Brooklyn, and painstakingly restored. This is truly a work... More
