Being a tourist in your own backyard can uncover many wonders and suprises in NYC. I was delighted to hear about the opening of a magical carousel in Battery Park.
Featuring 30 different sea creatures that glow, rotate and rise up and down, the new attraction sits on the site of the original New York Aquarium. It looks absolutely beautiful. The fish, which are as big as 9 1/2 feet wide by 13 1/2 feet tall, are made of fiberglass and steel, and glow from within to mimic the bioluminescence of marine life. Looks like a carousel for all ages!
SeaGlass Carousel will be open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m
