Friedsam Memorial Carousel
Location:Mid-Park at 64th Street, Central Park
Long viewed as a symbol for the park, the Freidman Memorial Central Park Carousel is still in operation today. While not the original mule-drawn carousel from the 1800's, the current carousel was constructed in the early 1900's on Coney Island, and was relocated to Central Park in the 1950's. Since then the carousel has brought smiles to millions of riders and will hopefully continue to do so for another hundred years. April 12, 2012: The carousel is currently closed for repairs and restoration, and is expected to reopen on May 1.
