Took my 2 girls to this carousel while we were in Brooklyn, $2 each to ride it’s fantastic value to ride on such a famous landmark. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area, kids loved it!

Beautiful area to tour around, get on the carousel, have some fun. Enjoy the view! There's great places to eat near by, or you can do a picnic on the grass. This area is beautiful both night and day. Perfect for taking pictures.

Carousel was not open the Tuesday we were here. Luckily you can see the carousel from the outside thanks to the plexiglass showcase. Beautifully restored.

Absolutely beautiful carousel and views to match. It's a great experience for the young and young at heart. It wasn't busy when we visited so no wait time. At only $2 a ride it's a must do when visiting Brooklyn Bridge Park!

The carousel is in our neighborhood so it’s easy to get to. Go early when they open, lines always form with families. Great views of all east river bridges. Kids will love it and it’s cheap!!!
