Here’s how it went down: Gail sent me an email with a link to a story about this woman Jane, who spent 22 years finding, purchasing and totally restoring a carousel. It’s an amazing story of commitment, determination and ambition. 5 days ago, I sent the link to Murray, who commented that it was interesting! THEN, he sent me an article written about Jane and her carousel that was published in CAROUSEL April 2009. THEN Murray went to DUMBO where under the Brooklyn Bridge, Jane’s dream and hard work had come true. That was 7 days ago and the opening day of the carousel. He took some FAB FOTOS (look for more on Friday’s blog), sent them to Jane herself and got a reply and then sent them to me and I’m passing a couple on to you today, just two because after all this is just an amuse-bouche.
