Binghamton “Carousel Capitol of the World”

Carousels are fading icons, with only approximately 150 throughout the U.S.and Canada, it’s fortunate for us that 6 are in the Greater Binghamton area. Donated by George F. Johnson, a local shoe manufacturer and benefactor, between 1919 and 1934, these whimsical relics remind us of a forgotten age, lost in the haze of day-to-day responsibilities. They’re open, and no charge to the public, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and can be found at the following locations:  Recreation Park, 58-78 Beethoven Street, Binghamton; George W. Johnson Park, 201 Oak Hill Avenue, Endicott; Ross Park, 60 Morgan Road, Binghamton; West Endicott Park, 501 Maple Street (at Page Avenue), Endicott; and C.Fred Johnson Park, 98 C.F.J. Boulevard, Johnson City.
