Nestled on Pier 62, Hudson River Park’s enchanting Animal Carousel features 33 custom, hand-carved wooden animal figures, modeled on species native to the Hudson River Valley and Hudson River, as well as one distinctive Oyster Chariot and two Unicorns. This one-of-a-kind attraction is a bright centerpiece of HRPK’s Chelsea Parkland, and a delight to NYC families.
