A famous Brooklyn Carousel may get another go-round.

The Bishoff and Brienstein Carousel was a fixture on Coney Island for more then 70 years, and now the city wants to refurbish it and make it a centerpiece of a new oceanfront plaza.

They're seeking consultants to get the carousel up and running again. The city bought the B & B Carousel two years ago.

It features 50 horses, four chariots and an organ. It's the only remaining merry-go-round from Coney Island's heyday in the 1920s.
