Photographer's Note

The SeaGlass Carousel architecture was inspired by the chambered nautilus (a mollusc), the spiraling pavilion of glass and steel. The project was made by architectural firm WXY and artist George Tsypin. The design is also unusual for placing its operating machinery under the floor, so that there is no post in the center of the ride.

It was open to public in 2015. The project to build a carousel was created by Warrie Price, and City officials described the carousel's opening as a symbol of recovery in the area, which suffered damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

The carousel is the work of New York architectural firm WXY and artist George Tsypin. Music for the ride was created by Teddy Zambetti, a composer and music executive for SiriusXM, who adapted familiar classical themes by Debussy, Mozart, Prokofiev, Ravel, and Saint-Sa螚s into contemporary styles.
