Not sure how we missed this, but the Brooklyn Eagle reported on Monday that, after years of discussions, the vintage carousel that Jane Walentas restored by hand and that more recently has been housed in a cramped storefront on Water Street will get its day in the park. Brooklyn Bridge Park, that is. While no official announcement has been forthcoming yet, The Eagle says that Jane's Carousel will be located on the western shore of the cove in front of the Tobacco Warehouse (a stone's throw from the new Brooklyn Flea location) and be housed in a glass structure designed by the starchitect Jean Nouvel.
