Former Idora Park ride wins national popularity contest

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK, NY - The one time center piece of Youngstown's Idora Park has won a national popularity contest.

The carousel that is a source of memories for countless people is now underneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

Now called Jane's Carousel, the merry-go-round has been chosen as the winner in this year's New York Red Tricycle's Totally Awesome Awards

James Carousel received the most online votes in the competition's Most Awesome Parks and Playgrounds category.

Jane Waltans spent 22 years restoring the carousel.

The Idora Amusement Park was heavily damaged by a fire in 1984 and closed soon thereafter.
