Project manager Evan George (l.) and assistant architect Christopher Farnum (r.) show potential bidders Forest Park Carousel at Woodhaven Blvd. and Myrtle Ave.
For the first time in almost two decades, the historic Forest Park Carousel will be shuttered on Memorial Day weekend.
The unofficial start of summer has customarily also served as opening day for the 49 hand-carved horses, lions, tigers, deer and chariots.
Parks Department officials said they are still working to find a concessionaire to run the rare carousel, which dates to 1903.

Not having Bliss cafe for the last week was a real downer for Kew Gardens. Our only cafe, place to sit and read the paper with good music, people and atmosphere, place to get a good coffee or tea, bagels and muffins in the morning and sandwiches and soup for lunch, a place to sit down and relax or quickly run off to your train with your goodies. After a small hiatus due to some minor building related problems Bliss is back on the scene and better than ever. The changes they have implemented while closed make it much more attractive and clean now, especially that warm weather is upon us and their outdoor tables are a great spot to hang out at. Bliss has also started a Spring Special for the month of May for its customers giving them 10% off their bills! Just mention that you read this article!

M.T.A. Rescue Passes, but Impact Is Questioned
The State Legislature passed a series of new taxes and fees late Wednesday night meant to keep New York’s base subway fare from rising above $2.25 this year.
