Central Park's first carousel was built in 1870 and was turned by a blind mule and a horse. The present vintage Carousel was brought over from Coney Island in 1951, where it had been left abandoned in the old trolley terminal. Crafted by the Brooklyn firm of Stein and Goldstein in 1908, the Carousel is one of the largest in the United States, with 58 hand-carved, painted horses.
