Mid-park (at 64th street).
One of the largest in USA with 57 hand-carved horses and 2 chariots. 
Hours : April-October : 10am - 6pm

2. Seaglass Carousel

Big luminescent fishes that swim inside a giant nautilus with aquatic sound effects to make you feel like a mermaid!

3. The Bug Carousel 
Bronx Zoo. 

You won’t find any horses on this carousel. Instead, you’ll find grasshoppers, praying mantises, bees, beetles, and lady bugs, among others.

4. Jane's Carousel
