The carousel in Central Park

From the Central Park web site:

After a long search the Parks Department discovered the present vintage Carousel, abandoned in the old trolley terminal on Coney Island. Crafted by the Brooklyn firm of Stein and Goldstein in 1908, the Carousel is one of the largest in the United States, with 58 hand-carved, painted horses. Stein and Goldstein were among the foremost carvers of their day and the horses – nearly life-size in the outer ring – are caught rearing or mid-stride with almost fierce reality.
