Step right up, step right up! Did you know New York has 12 carousels? One of them is even made out of sea glass—amazing! The one pictured here is Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park. It is $2 a ride and is open 11am to 7pm through 14 October (closed Tuesdays).
The man-made mechanical forest, five years in the making, consists of 18 supertrees that act as vertical gardens, generating solar power, acting as air venting ducts for nearby conservatories, and collecting rainwater. To generate electricity, 11 of the trees are fitted with solar photovoltaic systems that provide lighting and assist with water flow in the conservatories below.
