This is one of the horse-drawn carriages that are popular among tourists who want a picturesque and romantic way to visit Central Park. They can be found all year round lined up along Central Park South between 5th and 6th Avenues. Considered a New York City classic, these carriages have been featured in numerous movies. Animal rights activists however have been urging legislators to ban these carriages because they say horses are treated inhumanely. Above is a photo I took of a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park one snowy morning.
