About Jane’s Carousel
Jane’s Carousel is a classic 3-row, 48-horse carousel, with carved horses and chariots attributed to John Zalar and Frank Carretta. Created in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and originally installed in Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio, it was purchased by David Walentas in 1983 and restored by Jane Walentas over the course of more than twenty years. Today the Carousel shines under 1,200 brilliant lights and is installed along the East River at Brooklyn Bridge Park in an exquisite jewel box by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel.
