Brooklyn, Ny: B&B Carousell at Coney Island

This historic carousel recently returned to Brooklyn's Coney Island last summer after a 5-year restoration project. First build in 1906, the 50 antique horses are all freshened up and ready to ride. Many first-timers at Coney Island recall this as their first ride, before they were big enough to ride the Cyclone. Cost is just $3/ride.

Open daily, hours vary by season.
