YouTube: Jane Walentas' Carousel

In case you missed the CBS News Sunday Morning last week that highlighted Jane’s Carousel in Dumbo, below is the YouTube video clip. Based on the piece, carousels are making a comeback. At the peak of their popularity there were about 1,500 carousels in this country. Today, there are only about 150. But they are, as Charles says. “coming back in favor.” The Walentas family intends to donate the carousel to the city to go somewhere in the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
