Happy 100th Birthday to the Prospect Park Carousel!

       When you think about it, you realize that there are not too many things that last for a hundred years.  More than 6,000 carousels were built here in the United Statesin the early part of the 20th Century, and only 200 still exist today.  And one of them is inBrooklyn: the Carousel inProspectPark. 

       Carved in 1912 by Charles Carmel, the animals on the carousel include horses, a lion, a giraffe, a deer, and two dragon-pulled chariots.  The carousel has operated continuously since then, except for a 7-year restoration period in the 1980s.  You can see some great photos at http://nationalcarousel.org/psp/ProspectPark/.  Better yet, take a ride for yourself!
