Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn

4.5
Jane's Carousel is a completely restored historic Carousel made by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC #61) in 1922. It is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses, and 2 superb chariots. The wood carvings, often attributed to John Zalar and Frank Carretta, are among the finest of their kind. In addition, the scenery panels, rounding boards, crests, center pole and platform are all original to the Carousel. It was the first Carousel to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Friends of Janes Carousel is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Plan my Brooklyn trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • We did not expect such a beautiful old restored carousel. I was blown away buy how stunning the carousel is and the glass house that its encased in. Not only that but its situated under two amazing bridges and a sprawling view! Amazing visit!
  • This is a very nice carousel for children and adults at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Only 2 bucks to ride. Anyone who weighs more than 225 lbs can't ride the horses but can still ride the carriages. Stunning view of Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Great to take pictures and relax. I wish I knew of this spot a long time ago. Jane's carousel is special and magical.
