B&B Restoration Under Way

At last week's Museum of New York City panel discussion, Lynn Kelly mentioned briefly that the process of restoring the city owned B&B carousel (Coney Island's last old wooden carousel) would be getting under way this week.

NY1 News has now given further details:

Carousel experts and fine art movers are carefully packing the dismantled Bishoff & Brienstein Carousel for a journey to an Ohio restoration shop where it will be refurbished and eventually returned to Brooklyn. […]

The restoration is expected to take up to two years.
