“I’m not sure because it is a tradition but the carriages also block traffic.”

“The carriages are good because there is a very nostalgic and romantic feel when you ride in them.”
Joy Xu

Javenia Harrington

“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.”
Javenia Harringon

Patricia Kelly

“I think it’s ridiculous because it’ll put a lot of people out of work.”
Patricia Kelly

Michael Capozzi

“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.”
Michael Capozzi

Raul Arguello

“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.”
