Carousels & Organs in Broome County, New York
By Vincent Morgan

Yesterday, Memorial Day, my wife and I were in the Binghampton,
New York, area and decided to ride all six carousels in Broome County.
The carousels are nice, but difficult to find -- even with their map,
which is not in perspective and in some places simply wrong.  But we
did find them by asking directions of the locals along the way.

Only one of the six carousels has an organ at present.  Two others are
supposed to have organs.  That one organ were heard had about 4 or 5
notes working.  The folk at the other 5 carousels played cassettes of
carousel music, but the volume was turned so low that the music could
only be heard when passing close to the loudspeakers.  We are glad
that we will be at Knoebels Amusement Park in Elysburg, Pennsylvania,
for the band organ rally on June 12th, to make up for this mechanical
musical bust.
