Jane’s Carousel in DUMBO

  • DUMBO!……a stupid person!?  No,  for New Yorkers  it’s an anacronym for” DOWN UNDER THE MANHATTAN BRIDGE OVERPASS”.   Located in Brooklyn…….on the waterfront……in Empire State Park.

JANE’S CAROUSEL…………has finally opened.

Jane Walentas rescued these ponies 25 years ago……from a burned out theme park in Ohio.  It had taken all these years to restore it to it’s original glory.

PONY UP 2 BUCKS…..and he’s yours…..the mount of your choice.

A Palomino……….. perhaps?

Can you handle a prancer?

Patricia chose a Stallion.  Brave soul!

Donald settled in on a trotter.  What!  You thought he’d choose a bucking bronco?

She seems terrified by her choice!  Notice, they have the same Dentist !

I chose the carriage…..that’s me [that you can’t see]……crouching down.

Lots of prancing ponies to choose from.

This beauty awaits your pleasure………

Could be Alexander the Great‘s horse……..Bucephalus.

Back to Manhattan………..a brisk walk across the Brooklyn Bridge……….and you’re home!
