The Buffalo Carousel Round Square forms on Canalside. The eight-story facility will be built on an 8,565-square-foot site near the corner of Prime and Perry Streets. After the delay of the structure related to the cave, it is expected that it will be open to the public in the spring. Construction in a building near Longshed wrapped last week.
The vintage carousel was manufactured in 1924 by Spillman Engineering in North Town for Dominic De Angelis. The carousel operated until the 1950s, when it was maintained by the De Angelis family until the Buffalo heritage acquired it for family-oriented recreation on the Buffalo coast and the celebration of West New York’s industrial heritage.
