Glen Echo Park, looking its most Village-ish
The carousel building, vintage 1921, seen from above.
Looks cool and refreshing, doesn't it? Don't you want to jump right in and splash around?
Nothing says "art deco" like a bunch of floodlights all randomly shaped like Pac-Man.
Speaking of Pac-Man, check out the word "corn." Glen Echo Park has all these big neon signs advertising stuff that isn't actually there any more, which makes it all the more surreal. There is a small cafe where you can get popcorn and snacks ... but it's far removed from any of the big neons signs that say "Pop Corn" or "Candy," and doesn't have a sign of its own.
Like for instance, here's a big neon sign advertising "Cuddle Up." Is that a command? Why is there nothing there but a small stage and a big empty space, then?
We think this was once a fountain.
This carousel has all the original animals from when it was new in 1921, in beautiful shape.
Somehow, fedoras just look good on lions. I don't look so good on lions, myself.
Get this guy off my back!
This was the only picture of the bunch I took. So I like abstracts! I'm an artist. ;P
You can see the rest of the pictures here. Very cool, neverlandy fun.
