In the late 1800s, carousel makers set up shops there and by the turn of the century two dozen merry-go-rounds were operating on the island.

The B&B was built in Coney Island, with a frame dating to 1906, and at some point it operated in New Jersey, although it is unclear for how long. In the early 1920s it received a new set of horses that were carved by Charles Carmel, one of Coney Island's celebrated carousel makers. It had returned to Brooklyn by 1935.[212][213][214][215]
