Carriage horses

Carriage horses may be limited to only Central Park.
"This is such a cruel industry... our Mayor is trying to ban it, and there's been so many accidents."
The drivers got a raise.
The City Council confirmed that it did have enough votes to pass the now-defunct legislation.
It appears that the money is tied to approving the mayor's carriage-horse deal.
One councilmember called the deal a "shotgun wedding" between the Teamsters and the mayor's administration.
They are calling the ban on pedicabs beneath 85th street a monopoly and say it will put them out of business.
There is a lot of neigh-ing already.
"If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let 'em go, because man, they're gone."
Some carriage horses were heard snoring, so science tells us they're happy.
A recent poll shows that 67 percent of New Yorkers oppose a ban on carriage horses.
Making good on one of his core campaign promises, Mayor Bill de Blasio will introduce legislation this month that will phase out the use of carriage horses in NYC.
