Old-time Kiddie Rides in Jackson Heights, Queens
all images by Carole Terwilliger Meyers

          During my many visits to Jackson Heights in Queens, New York, I’ve discovered some wonderful old-time kiddie rides outside shops.  They wait patiently for someone to insert a few quarters for a ride.  Sometimes it is a very long wait.  The rides include horses, a dinosaur, and an elephant. 
I’ve discovered that these artifacts from the past exist in other neighborhoods, too, and in many other places around the world.  So I also have a yellow elephant from Manhattan’s Chinatown, a taxi from the Santa Monica Pier in Southern California, and a quarter horse from Amarillo, Texas.
