Jane’s Carousel is surrounded by water and many other Tweets and observations of Sandy’s wrath upon Brooklyn are part of the Brooklyn Bugle’s Tale of the Tweets. Updated all day, check it out here. Also check out Homer’s Tour Video diary of the storm which will be updated regularly today, too. (Photo via @dumbonyc)

    Ha ha. We told you not to put that thing there.

  • gatornyc

    Thanks for showing your true stripes Villager. That of an ass.

  • Villager

    Do some research.

    Villager — so when was the last time that area flooded? I’ve been here 10+ years and this is the first time we’ve had anything like this. From what I’m hearing, this is the worst storm in NYC recorded history. I concur w/ gatornyc’s assessment.

    I hope they had enough sandbags around it to protect it – love this park

  • Karl Junkersfeld

    Love the park also and the carousel is awesome. Hope the damage isn’t too extensive.

  • VillagerFan

    Villager – our thoughts exactly. Bravo!

    I took my granddaughter to Jane’s Carousel. She was just 20 months old and she was delighted with the carousel. She went on with her parents. When she got off, she stood by the outside of the carousel and just kept on staring. She really loved the carousel and I think would have stayed on all day long if she could.
    I am hoping that it survived with little or no damage.

  • Villager

    Yes, let’s only consider what may have or have not happened over the last 10-ish years.
    All the liberals have been screaming for years that global warming is real and sea levels will rise. So, this should not be the worst storm/flooding yet to come.

    If you’ve been here that long, then you should remember how Walentas forcibly installed the carousel in it’s location without proper community review. Community opinion was that the location was not proper and would interfere with bridge vistas. Which it grossly does.

    Agree with Villager. The placement of that thing is atrocious. Too bad it wasn’t washed out to sea.

  • God Almighty

    Another vote for Villager, I wish the carousel was swept into the river as Andrew Porter predicted on another thread.

  • BH’er

    Grossly interferes with bridge vistas?

    You guys need better things to do with your time…

  • Mr. Crusty

    Whatever damage there is will be fixed and the carousel will be enjoyed by for a long long time by children and adults alike. The bellyaching by the perpetually outraged is just irrelevant noise pay it no attention.

    I also hoped it had blown out to see. I had no problem with the carousel in it’s old location..which is now an empty lot waiting for..probably another high rise building.
    It completely destroys one of the best views in the world. Also interesting that Jane’s husband owns Two Trees Management..so you can figure out how it was placed in it’s new location.
    I wish all remaining arts organizations would leave Dumbo. It is pretty much only a tourist destination now which is sadly neither arty, nor relevant.

    Its finally happened: God Almighty is taking my name in vain…
