T+L Design Awards 2012 names Jane’s Carousel Pavilion, located in Brooklyn Bridge Park as "Best Public Space". T+L writes lovingly, "In a completely unexpected pairing, a richly detailed carousel (1922) and a see-through minimalist shed (2011) jointly occupy a dramatic waterfront site in the shadow of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. The carousel is open to the public, and after sunset, the pavilion’s acrylic walls are illuminated, creating a light show visible across the river and from the bridges above."
The carousel is $2 a ride and happens to be located a few streets away from the end point of our Brooklyn Heights walking tour starting up again in April. Join us for a historic stroll then take a spin on a historic painted pony!
