GARDEN CITY - For some it brings back childhood memories, for younger generations, it provides new memories. The Nunley’s Carousel is 100 years old and was recently restored and currently resides in Garden City for everyone to enjoy.

Some say the carousel is a time capsule of a great time that families have been enjoying for years. Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano feels the carousel reflects the quality of life that was in the county generations ago and still continues at its home at Museum Row.

Pictures high above the carousel highlight snapshots of Long Island from year’s past. And children can still try to catch the brass ring that sits along side the carousel.

Mangano encourages families to come to the Cradle of Aviation to take a step back in time and ride the newly restored carousel.

Nunley’s Carousel is open from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays. The cost is just $2 to ride.
