  • Is an incredible piece of history. At 51, have ridden it every time I'm in Manhattan. I never feel too old! Is a fantastic animal, hand-carved, OUT of WOOD, by the infamous Stein & Goldstein in 1908. If you're a Carousel Historian, or just want a ride on a classic piece of the past, don't miss this attraction.

  • My German grandfather took me for rides on the carousel when i was 8-12 yrs old. This was almost 62 years ago. He lived in Brooklyn. I lived in Long Branch, New Jersey. So many wonderful memories.57 yrs later, i went to Central Park, not realizing the carousel was still there. I was excited beyond words. I told my 13 yr old granddaughter to find it when she went to New York last week. She had a photo taken of her on the carousel. I cried. what a gift I will treasure forever. If I could send you this photo, I would. I will scan the photo and put on facebook. I never knew the name of the carousel. Proud to say i rode on The Friedsam Memorial Carousel many times, Central Park NYC..
