This just in from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Facebook page about Jane’s Carousel, which was photographed last night surrounded by water (photo: Jen Carlson/Gothamist):
This just in from Jane Walentas: The horses are fine! The wooden Carousel & horses as well as the building, are all fine. Unfortunately, the basement that houses all the electronics was totally flooded, with 5 feet of water. As soon as we can pump it out we’ll assess the damage. We’re optimistic that the Carousel will be fine, but it will probably take some time to get it fully restored to happily prancing again.
