Riding the Seaglass Carousel is special because the ride makes you feel like you are spinning in an underwater globe. It is a serene piece of art that magically changes the expressions of faces seated on the ride and those watching from a distance.

Located in Battery Park, nestled between the Staten Island and Governor Island Ferries, it’s an unexpected oasis in the bustling city. Here it’s possible to glide “under the sea” and then step onto a ferry to glide above the Hudson and view the statue of Lady Liberty at close range.

Feeling freedom from two different perspectives is a great foundation for an exceptional daycation.

What kind of daycation makes you feel free?
