Horsing around in NYC

Carousel horse/Michele Bedigian

As my older son closed off his first year at a new school in June we thought it would be an interesting summer if we set up a treasure hunt that would last throughout their vacation. The mission was to ride every carousel we could find in the tri-state area (including Nassau and Suffolk). To simply say “it was the best ever” would be an understatement. In the hunt for amusement we found gold right in our own backyard. For they rode each one with so much love and excitement we gained more than we ever expected; from the spectacular SeaGlass Carousel (SO SO GORGEOUS!!) to Jane’s Carousel, the Central Park Carousel, the Bug Carousel, the Carousel in Flushing Meadows Fantasy Forest, Bryant Parks classic french Le Carrousel, Coney Island’s B&B Carousel, Nunley’s, amongst a dozen others, even the Forest Park Carousel

Searching for carousel horses is a big topic of discussion here in this house…the mission now is to foster this new found tradition and maybe expand the hunt up and down the east coast! So have an merri-go Sunday! – Michele  (P.S. Above is a drawing of one of the horses on Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel I did a few weeks back in WDW’s Fantasyland.)
