For your next family fun day, treat the kids to a merry-go-round ride they’ll never forget. Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn may be one of the city’s newest institutions, but the thrills it provides are nothing short of classic. Watch the little ones’ eyes brighten as they take in the rows of ponies, each brightly painted and endlessly detailed. Saddle up, grab a pole, and try not to be dazzled by the mirrors and jewels on the horses, which sparkle in tandem with the glowing lights that ring the ride. The bell sounds and you’re off, kiddie hearts racing to the upbeat music of an antique organ. As the ride spins, you’ll enjoy priceless views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline–though the kids may be too into their horsemanship to even notice. Afterwards, check out river breezes and the spectacular glass pavilion that houses the carousel. Or give in to the clamoring voices and relive your own childhood by going for another ride.
