Janes Carousel Pavilion Construction begins

Finally, now that the design by Pritzker-winning, Foucault-resembling architect Jean Nouvel has been revealed, space has been allocated, and trees have been felled, Brownstoner confirms with the groundworks photo above (taken on Friday) that construction has begun on a new pavilion in Empire Ferry State Park for Jane’s Carousel, the vintage roundabout salvaged from Youngstown, Ohio, in 1984 by local real estate heavyweights the Walentases, and currently housed nearby on Water Street. Still no word on when the thing will actually start spinning.
