Le Carrousel

Brightly colored animals, French classical style, and cabaret music define the park's charming carousel

Le Carrousel in Bryant Park, specially created to complement the park’s French classical style, is an homage to both European and American carousel traditions. Its 14 delightful animals, replicas of classica carousel creatures, revolve to the sounds of French cabaret music. The rounding boards, inspired by Bryant Park’s elegant barouque-style torchères along 40th Street, blend into the leafy canopy of the park’s London Plane trees.

Fabricon Carousel Company, whose artists designed and created Le Carrousel, was based in Brooklyn, NY, and has hundreds of other installations as far away as China and as close as Riverbank State Park on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
