Bryant Park's Le Carrousel pays homage to the greenspace's Parisian influence with 14 animals that revolve to French cabaret music. But don't expect European snobbery here: Activities for families abound. This summer, the carousel's mascot, Flaubert Frog (aka children's storyteller about town, Dan Kitrosser), will hang with local kids on Saturdays from 1-2pm for games and stories and on Sundays from 1-2pm magicians from Monday Night Magic will astound tots with their sleight of hand. Check website for a complete schedule of this year's events.
