derelict Casino Carousel Building, Asbury Park

The Casino Carousel House was designed by Whitney Warren (one of the men who designed NYC’s Grand Central Station), and it used to house the Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel #87, which was installed around 1923. I don’t know exactly when the carousel was removed from Asbury Park, but parts of it can now be found at Family Kingdom Park in Myrtle Beach, SC. (The horses are not the original ones, but some of them are said to be cast from the originals.)
