There has been a deal made to settle the 'question' of Central Park's carriage horses.http://www.paulickreport.com/horse-care ... tral-park/
1) The new 'deal' allows the carriage horses to continue to work, supposedly out of a yet-to-be-built new stable, which one hopes will be a nice new barn, with airy, spacious stalls. There will also be time limits for how long a horse can work in a day. That's nice, but...
2) The new barn will only house 75 horses, with the number of licensed horses cut to 95, instead of 180. So, nearly 100 horses will be out of a job, homeless, and likely at risk of being trucked to Canada.
And I wonder how many carriage owners will be squeezed out of their profession?
3) The developers get their hands on that prime real estate that the present stables are sitting on, so the money they have been spending on lobbyists to pressure the mayor has been well-spent.
