Pier 62 Carousel
It's name may not sound fabulous, but the Pier 62 Carousel isn't bland. Located at Hudson River Park's Pier 62 near Chelsea Piers, this waterfront merry-go-round opened in May 2010 and features 33 hand-carved animals, most indigenous to Hudson River Valley (we’re partial to the sea turtle, raccoon and wild turkey). Tykes can also perch atop a classic wooden steed (it's a unicorn) or ride in the grand oyster chariot, which is also wheelchair accessible.
