Granny's Folly Gets a Makeover

One by one, New Jersey based artist, Andrew Tedesco, is breathing new life into the animals (and chariot) of Le Carrousel in Bryant Park. This MSNC featurette points the spotlight on leader of the pack, Granny’s Folly, as Tedesco gives him a whole new look.
The beautiful paint work shown in the video is just one component of a larger carousel renovation project, which began in 2008. Upgrades have also been made to the ticket booth, carousel floor boards, internal mechanisms, and ground surface surrounding the entire structure. So far, the results have been phenomenal, and much appreciated by both the riders and operators of Le Carrousel.
