Central Park Carousel
New York, NY, USA
Jewel of Central ParkOne of my favorite highlights of Central Park is the carousel, not least because of its (if you'll excuse the pun) pivotal appearance in The Catcher in the Rye. The carousel itself is a beautiful throwback, and an activity that both parents and kids can enjoy. Next time you're walking through the park, don't be remiss in paying your respects to J.D. Salinger and stopping by the carousel for a minute or two—or much, much longer if you have kiddos in tow!
