With all of the devastation being wrought by Hurricane Sandy, it’s good to be able to share some good news. Despite a dramatic picture showing Jane’s Carousel underwater, it looks like things will be alright. Via the Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Facebook page comes the following update on the state of its historic carousel:
The wooden Carousel & horses as well as the building, are all fine. Unfortunately, however, The basement that houses all the electronics was totally flooded- 5ft. of water. As soon as we can pump it out we ‘ll assess the damage. We’re optimistic that the Carousel will be fine, but it will probably take some time to get it fully restored to happily prancing again.
So screw you, ya jerk hurricane.
