From CBS New York:
A 1910 carousel featuring 46 hand-carved horses, a lion, tiger and deer has been declared a New York City landmark.
The Forest Park Carousel in Woodhaven, Queens, is the city’s first carousel to get the designation.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously approved it Tuesday.
The two-tiered, three-row carousel was manufactured by the celebrated Philadelphia carousel maker D.C. Muller & Brother.
It was originally made for Lakeview Park in Dracut, Mass.
The carousel began operating in the 500-acre Forest Park in 1973. It also has an ornate band organ manufactured by the A. Ruth & Sohn Organ Company in Waldkirch, Germany.
It doesn't stand in the way of development and will add to the LPC's Queens tally, so it was designated.
