New Carousel in New York City Needs Band Organ
By Larry Racies

In New York City there's a brand new park, Chelsea Park, on the
Hudson River at 23rd street which contains a carousel.  When I visited
it a low-fi sound system was playing disco music.  Quel sacrilège!!

This carousel sorely needs a band organ.  I'm hopeful that readers of
MMD can suggest ways to whip up community support so that a suitable
band organ may be acquired for this carousel.

Thanks in advance,
Larry Racies
