Beautiful Vignette of Jane's Carousel in Dumbo

Jane's Carousel may look like a modern attraction on the outside with it's shiny glass and aluminum shell, but inside sits an all-wooden carousel that dates back nearly a hundred years.

Jane's Carousel is a classic 3-row machine with 48 exquisitely carved horses and two superb chariots. It was created in 1922, the heyday of the American Carousel, by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company (P.T.C.) Designated as PTC. No. 61, it was originally installed in Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio, then a prosperous steel-making city.

This video is a short vignette filmed by student filmmaker Bettina Ávila for a class at NYU.
