Battery Park's $16 Million SeaGlass Carousel Opened Today to Great Fanfare

A cool new attraction just opened in Battery Park: the $16 million SeaGlass Carousel.

An imperious 14-foot-high translucent fiberglass angelfish beckons, as do five stout butterflyfish, each seven feet high. A gorgeous pink crown tail belongs to an 11-foot Siamese fighting fish, outdone in its flamboyance only by the 12-foot yellow lionfish. Triggerfish, wrasses and a blue discus also await. There are 30 fish in all.

Check out the Battery Park Conservancy's page or this recent article in the New York Times for more info on the SeaGlass Carousel.
