Nunley’s Carousel was created in 1912 by the Stein and Goldstein Artistic Carousell Co. of Brooklyn New York. The carousel was installed on the Brooklyn waterfront in Canarsie’s Golden City Park where it was known as “Murphy’s” carousel and operated for 26 years. in the Spring of 1940, it reopened as Nunley's Carousel in Baldwin NY. Nunley’s closed in 1995 and was purchased by Nassau County. Re-opened in its new home on Museum Row in 2009, the carousel has been painstakingly restored to its former glory.

Murphy's Carousel became Nunley's Carousel
