Week 30 – #40. The Good Old Days

4 Comments

Jane’s Carousel is located in Brooklyn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and reminds me of “the good old days” when as a little girl my parents would take me to Warner Park in Chattanooga, TN to ride the carousel. Jane’s Carousel is a 1922 carousel originally installed in Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio. In 1984, it was purchased by Jane and David Walantas, who spent years restoring it to its original condition. Encased in a glass structure, it was commissioned by the Walantas’ and architect Jean Nouvel and placed in the Brooklyn Bridge Park on the East River in 2011. If you find yourself in New York, do yourself a favor and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and see, or take a ride on, this beautiful carousel.carousel-dsc_6400

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. The sharp angles of the building combined with the circular light that you captured make this really good!
