Behind the scenes -- construction of the SeaGlass Carousel at The Battery.
May 26, 2015 - New York, NY : Unlike a traditional carousel, the Seaglass Carousel in Battery Park's mechanical and electrical workings are almost exclusively hidden below ground. Here, a view of the 'slip ring' -- which transfers power from the stationary to the moving parts of the machine. A project of The Battery Conservancy, the Seaglass Carousel, which is set to open in mid-July, is a creation of WXY Architecture and George Tsypin Opera Factory.
