Le Carrousel in Bryant Park right behind the NY Public Library is about the same age as its little riders – it was installed in 2002. Its style matches the French influenced landscape of the Park. To add to the mood, ten ponies, a frog, a rabbit, a cat and a deer are carrying their passengers under the accompaniment of French cabaret music.

It was fun to watch kids and their parents! Many of us have memories of a carrousel from our own childhood . Mine was le manège in Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. I am sure the little riders of Le Carrousel will keep these moments in their memory for a long time.


  1. SO charming! What a lovely addition to the park, and yes, a creator of memories for all those children.

  2. I've always loved carousels, and this one looks and sounds wonderful.
