Carousel tour given by me
Carousel by Cris B Critter

Over the past three days I took a family of four visiting from Michigan on a whirlwind tour of nearly every carousel here in my NewYork City hometown ...riding 11 of the 14 carousels across four of the five boroughs, reaching all of and between them entirely by public transportation. It was quite a blast and we enjoyed our mutual company of carousel afficionados. Like a local DIY carousel convention! The parents found out about me on the Facebook page for the National Carousel Association. It was my pleasure and honor to be their NYC carousel guide.

The rides I took my guests to:

Staten Island Zoo, Carousel For All Children at Willowbrook Park, SeaGlass, Central Park, Bryant Park, Pier 62, Jane's Carousel, Coney Island B&B, Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Forest Park

He certainly was smart enough to use my iPhone to switch my Facebook cover picture.

Nothing like getting a big hug...

I've had the pleasure of being acquainted with the author of Paddington Bear and joined him for tea time at Trump Tower in 1989, at which time he autographed most of my PB storybooks and gave me a couple more. Paddington Bear was also one of the very first celebrity characters I got to work with that same year, during an appearance for Manhattan Cable TV. I still own one of his coats and hats.

This photo is from last September at the Secaucus NJ Public Library.

Watch out for the School Bus of Death!
