NYC ride replaces nostalgic-themed ponies and unicorns with a futuristic aquatic look.

WXY Architecture recently finished off an undersea-themed carousel in Lower Manhattan for the Battery Park Conservancy. SeaGlass, which opens this fall, replaces nostalgic-themed ponies and unicorns with a futuristic aquatic look that will make visitors feel like they are diving underwater.

Instead of a single level that moves in one direction, SeaGlass features three that spin inside a larger disc. The carousel's thirty seats are translucent fiberglass molded into dolphins, turtles, clownfish, and other marine life.
