when the palermo parents left us last saturday afternoon, rob and i decided to have a brooklyn picnic in dumbo. i have been wanting to see the new carousel and the weather couldn't have been nicer.
jane's carousel was built in 1922 and originally lived in youngstown, ohio. in 1984 jane walentas, a dumbo resident, purchased the broken down beauty and restored her by hand over nearly three decades. the carousel was installed in the newly beautified brooklyn bridge park and opened at $2 per ride in september this year.
our outdoor meal was appropriately made from thanksgiving leftovers.
we filled this weekend with live music at the williamsburg music hall followed with more music. a 'vacuum microphone' karaoke and dance party in the apartment.
