French classical style with colorful animals + cabaret music
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 classic 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.

History of the Carousel
The word “carousel” has been traced to twelfth-century Arabian games of horsemanship called “carosellos” or “little wars.” The game consisted of riders tossing a small perfumed clay ball from one rider to another.
