Fête Paradiso at Governor’s Island Via My Sister

My sister went to Governor’s Island (in New York City) today.

Mary sent me some photos from her phone. You know she and I have been to a couple of carousels this year… Jane’s and Coney Island

Looked like a fun blog post in the making!   She did just that!  Thanks Mary. Her phone isn’t a smart one yet although I think it’s time to upgrade.

Fête Paradiso -Vintage French Carousel and Carnival Rides from the late 19th and early 20th century have been on display every weekend this summer, some to ride, some just to admire.
