  • Re: It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick
  • Could not agree more. Carriages were charming at first, now they are a major headache for residents (and have been for years), and MANY tourists as well find the sight of these horses groaning under the weight of too many people an absolutely deplorable sight.

  • Re: It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick
  • The problem we in the carriage industry face is that those that seek to end our industry don't know the facts nor do they care to. They believe that feelings equate fact and that's simply not true. You may feel that you are doing something positive by ending the carriage industry but the reality is that you are dooming the animals you claim to be…

  • Re: It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick
  • Thank you Mr. Cohen for your article. You are correct, it's time for a change, it's time to evolve and decide which options work best for everyone. Walking tours,PediCabs, electric cars and maybe even a dedicated Horse Park. There are several solid options.
