Prospect Park Carousel Opens Today!

2015-03-26

We'd be more excited about this if it weren't so gross + rainy. Maybe take a spin on Sunday when the weather is supposed to be fantastic. What else is brewing this weekend? There's an UES egg hunt at Carl Schurz Park, and another one at the Bartow-Pell Mansion. If you're a Member of the Tribe (me too!), then you can celebrate Passover a wee bit early at The Jewish Museum. There's tons of other stuff happening too - just use the calendar per the usual.

P.S. Did you miss our interview with Kaity + Jessica of Well Rounded NY yesterday? It's a fun read if you have the time. GIF via Prospect Park.
