A late night post, but it was a gorgeous day today here in NYC. 45 degrees never felt this warm! ha! So of course, we got everyone together and went to the Brooklyn Bridge park. Everything was sparkly after the snow and rain yesterday, it was so pretty.

We went by the carousel, too, they were cleaning the glass windows so it was open — such a beautiful thing! Can’t wait to go back with Mili…

On the ground of Jane’s Carousel, there is a huge type (their logo, I guess, but I don’t see it on their website) carved into the¬†asphalt it is really cool!

I wanted to take a whole picture, but it is so big that I couldn’t… the design is really nice, too. Happy found Tuesday!

Jane’s Carousel

Jane’s Carousel has been opened to the public since September 16th in Brooklyn Bridge Park and I finally walked by there last weekend — I LOVE that new area!

The Carousel is housed in an extraordinary new pavilion, designed by Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel.

Jane’s Carousel is a completely restored historic Carousel, a gift of Jane and David Walentas.¬† Built in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, the carousel was purchased in 1984 and painstakingly restored to its original condition.

Can’t wait to take our little daughter here very soon! :)
