(CNN) - Horse-drawn carriages could soon be a thing of the past in New York City's Central Park after Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio announced plans to outlaw the popular tourist attraction once in office.
"We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period," de Blasio said at a news conference Monday, saying that the practice is inhumane.
well, this leftist lunatic is off to a fast start! he hasn't even taken office and he already has plans to wreck a part of the tourism business because he knows better what tourists want. well nyc, you are going to get exactly what you deserve because you fools voted for this far left imbecile. i can hardly wait to hear all of his other ideas to wreck nyc!
maybe anthony weiner would have been a better choice!! even he wouldn't have been this nutty.
If New York City air is good enough for tourists, homeless, joggers, parents pushing kids in strollers....it is good enough for horses.This should not be a top priority for the new Mayor-elect.
does nyc have zoos? if so, when will diblobio shut them down? will he also seek to ban pets of any sort? are fishing vessels anywhere near nyc shores? gotta ban those. and all those nasty restaurants selling animal and fish flesh? shut all those down too. i hope he declares nyc the first vegan city.
and just when you though new yorkers couldn't get any more obnoxious, along comes this diblobio to set new standards in left wing lunacy.
What an idiot. One more reason NOT to go visit NYC.
I'm a centrist Dem; Bill de Blasio is a leftist who's going to alter the unique character of NYC. :-(
Too bad, about the only thing in NY worth a crap.
Great way to start your new job ending others jobs you elected him now live with it the joke is on you.
more and more rights being taken away you get what you paid for people
If the horses are in danger from cars and their fumes then so be it. My question is what happens to the horses now that they are no longer "working"?
Very tight security is needed in NY. After Russia incident we need this at home.
You haven't seen inhumane, Mr. Mayor-elect, until you've seen my cousin X on a horse-drawn carriage.
The horse looked like it was begging for a well-placed bullet after that turn around the park.
Horse-drawn carriage rides are an integral part of New York's Central Park, and a part of the city's charm. While I do understand that the poor animal are sometimes asked to carry an unusually heavy load, so to speak, the fact is that horses since time immemorial have been used as beasts of burden, in battle and in other ways that modern man now considers inhumane.
