What I Love About Pier 62 Carousel

Valentine’s Day just passed and the city is full of lovers. Love is in the air in New York City and we just can’t get enough of it. This is the perfect time of year to reflect on your love or make some great memories together.  When you think of love, what do you imagine? What are your favorite places to spend with your S/O? 

Pier 62 Carousel is a couples favorite. It’s right along the Hudson River, with stunning views of city skyline. The Pier itself is the place to be no matter what the weather is because the beauty is there and it’s so uplifting. Add the carousel to this amazing setting and it’s a perfect (affordable!) place for a romantic date on Valentine’s Day or a honeymoon photoshoot. Sharing love and sharing memories under the beautiful carousel lights, or even the chariot seat, may be a better way to experience the ride.


We recently held a social media contest for Valentine's day called “14 Days of Love” where users were invited to share their love stories or things they love about the carousel. Among the responses we received, these were the top 5:

  1. The breathtaking view at the carousel of the beautiful Hudson River and all the boats coming in or leaving the pier.
  2. The courtesy received from the carousel operator brings joy to all the customers as well as the children as soon as they enter the area.
  3. The indigenous animals that are on the carousel which make it very unique to New York City.
  4. The private party area used for hosting birthdays!
  5. The great, kid-friendly music on the carousel was so soothing and relaxing.


What would you add to the list? We can’t wait to see you and find out what you loved most about the carousel.
