The Carousel is one of the oldest attractions in Central Park, dating back to 1871. And one of the most popular, too – its 58 hand-carved horses (and two chariots) give more than a quarter million rides a year!
They are a wonderful example of traditional art, and were made by Solomon Stein and Harry Goldstein in
1908. The same can go for the fence, with its small bright horses, “running” on a band.
