Blogfinger reporter Stephen Goldfinger wandered over to the recently renovated Carousel Building where he found skateboarders airborn as a new purpose has been found for that historic beaux arts building.

Stephen says, ” Last night (Saturday  11/12/16)) – kids skateboarding at the carousel – it has a big speaker system that was blasting rock music while they skated.”

The Carousel Building was built with the Casino in 1932, designed by Warren and Wetmore, the beaux art architects who also were responsible for Grand Central Station in NYC.  The carousel, #87 built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company functioned for 50 years before being taken down.

We have been to farmers markets there in recent times, and some theatrical events have been presented  as well.  But the Asbury developers probably have some long-term plans for the building.  Meanwhile, go and watch those daring young men on their flying machines.
