Spin Cycle

The City Council parks committee discussed Tuesday where the Grand Carousel — once a mainstay of the now-defunct Libertyland — should be located. The Riverfront Development Corporation wouldn’t mind seeing it on Mud Island. Other people have suggested moving it to the zoo, but the zoo already has a carousel. City attorney Sara Hall told council members the city is still trying to find a site where it would add value and interest.

Which got us thinking: Where would be the perfect place for the carousel? Near Winchester and the Statue of Liberation? On the Main Street Mall? Right where it is?
