We love Nunley’s!

Who doesn’t love flying horses?! Nunley’s Carousel, created in 1912 by the Stein and Goldstein Artistic Carousell Co. of Brooklyn New York, was previously a main attraction at Nunley’s Amusements in Baldwin. My husband can remember going as a kid to the amusement park, but it shut down in 1995. Nassau County to the rescue! The carousel was purchased as an historic artifact and is now part of Museum Row in Hempstead.

all strapped in!

We had the place to ourselves on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and we couldn’t have had more fun. At $2 a ride, we just had to try out a few of the 41 horses (and one lion). Each horse had a unique name and was christened with a bronze name plate. The music was just what you would expect from a carnival ride, and LJ loved petting her horsie’s mane.

birthday horsies!

They do birthday parties, which might be right up this little girl’s alley. They also sell a 15 ride pack for $20. Not a bad thing to keep in the car, and take a quick spin through Nunley’s whenever we’re nearby. Its like an Easy-Pass for your flying horses. We love it!
