Located at Pier 62 on the Hudson River next to Chelsea Piers, the carousel and skatepark are part of a 9-acre park (which includes the adjacent Pier 63) that is, without exaggerating, an urban miracle. With a Sheeps Meadow–like expanse of grass, marvelous landscaping, and terrific views of the Hudson River, this is an ideal place to bring the kids for a sunny afternoon. Its pride and joy is a custom-designed 36-passenger carousel with all the hand-carved animals indigenous to the greater New York City area.
