Central Park Carousel
Historical tours are a great way to learn about the history of Central Park, one of the first urban landscaped parks in the United States. Those tours often make a stop at the Central Park Carousel.
The current carousel is the fourth one o be located at the location. The first one was opened in 1871 against the wishes of many park officials. They felt that a commercial venue was not appropriate in a park. Today, almost 250,000 people pay to ride the carousel that is usually open from April to October each year.
The current carousel was built in 1908 by Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein. It contains 57 magnificent horses and is the largest carousel ever at the park. It is also one of the largest carousels in the United States. The current Central Park carousel was found in a warehouse building on Coney Island.
