Berkshire Carousel is a marvel for all to enjoy

To the editor:

There is a treasure awaiting you at 50 Center Street in Pittsfield: the Berkshire Carousel. It's for everyone, young or old, to marvel at and enjoy.

I visited this old-fashioned merry-go-round last Wednesday with my daughter and grandson, and we all decided it was important to tell folks about it in case they hadn't heard that this most amazing place exists. The horses are so beautiful and all of them are original — carved and painted by hand by hundreds of volunteers.

Thank you to all who conceived of this treasure: the Shulman family and everyone who played a role in creating this work of art for all of us to enjoy again and again.
