Located in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Jane's Carousel is a completely restored historic Carousel made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1922. It is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses, and 2 superb chariots. It was brought to DUMBO by David and Jane Walentas and hand restored by Jane herself. The Walentas family commissioned Jean Nouvel to create the majestic enclosure. Jane's Carousel now thrills riders of a new generation with breathtaking views of the Brooklyn waterfront, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and the Manhattan skyline.
