Jane's Carousel (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The story of one woman's remarkable 25-year odyssey to restore the beloved carousel at Brooklyn Bridge Park

In 1983 a dream to revive the Dumbo area of Brooklyn was underway. Part of that plan was a carousel and it fell to Jane Walentas to find one. After extensive research, she located an intact 1922 example with 48 exquisitely carved horses - and then embarked on a two-plus decade restoration mission to return the historic attraction to its original elegance. After painstaking work, Walentas's next hurdle was to secure a spot in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Finally, in September 2011, Jane's Carousel opened to the public and has since become a beloved New York City destination.
