“If the horses stay in Central Park it is okay, but if they are out in the streets, no.”
“I’m not sure because it is a tradition but the carriages also block traffic.”
“I’m for banning because of the bad smells around Central Park.”
“The carriages are good because there is a very nostalgic and romantic feel when you ride in them.”
“I like the ban. I have been following PETA for a while and this city is a busy place for a horse to be in.”
“I think it’s ridiculous because it’ll put a lot of people out of work.”
“It’s honestly easier to just keep them because the carriages are part of New York’s history and it also keeps people in business.”
“The ban will be good for the horses but bad for the tourists, but it’s not even a New York City thing to do. Tourists don’t come here to specifically go on a horse-drawn carriage ride.”
