We found this as we walked away from the Ellis Island Ferry. Truly magical. Maybe it’s for children but we loved it as adults.

My six year old daughter enjoyed it, and it was unique - with an "under the sea" theme, both visually and with the music. And at $5 it was worth the ride. But it's not something I would go out of my way for -...More

This is a gorgeous carousel and very well worth a visit. Check the hours before you go, if you want to get a ride. Note that there are not many spots as the carousel itself is fairly small. Also, there is at least one spot...More
