    Default Horse hockey

    If Mayor de Blasio insists on destroying a world-renowned tourist attraction that provides livelihoods for a few hundred workers, the least he can do is act openly and through the law.

    That doesn’t appear to have been the case Thursday, when an NYPD officer told horse-and-carriage drivers at Central Park they couldn’t operate because of weather conditions — namely, icy roads. About 30 horses were sent back to the stables.

    What makes the order so fishy is that the only living creatures in New York that were affected by this danger were . . . horses. In other words, it didn’t apply to children who made their way to schools, apartment dwellers who walked their dogs, tourists bused to their destinations and so forth.

    I can't say who is right and who is wrong but it was a brutal day for the horses to be out.. New York Governor called a state of emergency yet NYC kept their schools open.. Maybe it is more about the money than worrying about how cold it was for the kids..As far as people walking their dogs there is no comparison as the dogs are not out making people money.. Another storm coming wed/thurs we will see how this plays out..

    This is has always been a double standard , you will have a GOV. or Mayor declare an emergency and tell people to stay off the roads and every school system in the suburbs will close , but N.Y.C. stays open , meanwhile no teachers can get into work because most of them live in the suburbs.

    They just had a forum on WABC News , someone from the A.S.P.C.A. vs. someone from the Teamsters , it was a good discussion , the truth came out about these cars they want to replace these horses , it's only one car that was built in Florida they want to test in N.Y. , and a rep. from the union pulled out some facts , these cars were operating in 2012 in San Francisco , and FAILED no one used them and they pulled the cars , now the same person wants to try these cars in N.Y.C. , and the discussion came up about the real estate that will be up for grabs and the A.S.P.C.A. denied being backed by real estate corporations that want to develop the property .

    Don't be fooled America this has nothing to do with the care of the horses , they are well taken care of , this has to do with greedy real estate deals about property worth millions and millions of dollars at stake .

    I would have to agree with you as I have seen what happened to all those buildings in lower Manhattan that became "PRIME" real estate for residential development. And isn't that the same real estate developer from NJ that financially backed the new mayor be one of those that would do very well??

    This mayor smiled to all the unions for there support , then stabbed them in the back , putting 300 Teamsters out of work , for his cronies who will buy up the property for development . Anyone who wants to buy property in the outer boro's is fine , but in Manhattan you have to part of the in crowd that's why all these high-rises keep going to the same handful of people , there maybe different corporations who owned them but if you research the corporate owners it's the same handful of family members who own everything .
