Horse and Carriage

244. Public Transportation

244. Public Transportation

A different sort of public transportation, by a horse, of course.

If you are looking for transportation to take you on an excursion through New York City’s Central Park, one of your choices are these carriages pulled by horses. They seem out of place to me–I think I might prefer the little carts powered by bicycle if I needed more transportation than my feet could  provide–but they appear to be popular, especially with families with older children.

    They are so New York! I’ve never been on one, but every romantic movie set in New York must have a horse and buggy scene. But my fave was the Seinfeld episode where Kramer commandeered a horse and buggy – and fed the horse a can of beans. You can imagine the result…

    The horse and the carriages do look a bit out of place surrounded by those huge buildings, but I kinda like it – great edits too!

    I totally agree with KarenB – they are New York to me. 🙂 /Viktoria – http://morrdrakens365.wordpress.com/

    Classic NYC–the steel skyscrapers and traffic, and then the horses and buggies. It sums up the contradictions inherent in a big city.

    Like the contrast of the skyscrapers and the horse & buggies. Cool shot.
