2. The Second Oldest Carousel in Queens is in Forest Park

Regarded as the park’s crowning jewel, the Forest Park Carousel showcases the work of wood-carver Daniel Carl Muller, who crafted figures for 12 carousels during his lifetime. The ride, first operated in 1903, is one of only two surviving carousels that depict his detailed work, featuring horses, unicorns and an array of other animals. It was also used as a filming location in Marvel Studio’s Netflix Series Daredevil.
