Exploring the Forest Park Carousel
From the Forum:
Forest Park Carousel might get a reboot from the company that revamped Coney Island.
Possible bidders including Central Amusement International LLC, which runs Luna Park at Coney Island, toured Forest Park Carousel last week where the Department of Parks and Recreation is asking for operators once again.
The carousel hasn’t run since the city’s contract with the last concessionaire expired in 2008, but on Jan. 12, officials switched the historic ride on to give bidders and residents a rare look at the hand-carved animals in motion.
