Carriage Rides in Central Park!
The Hansom cab is a kind of horse-drawn carriage designed and patented in 1834 by Joseph Hansom.
It's a quintessential NYC tourist thing to do - to take a Hansom cab ride around Central Park.
The cabs line up around the south end of the park, across from the famous Plaza Hotel.
Animal rights activists are calling for an end to Hansom cab rides in NYC
Animal advocacy groups support a bill banning rides on horse-drawn carriages in New York City.
Should Hansom cabs stay in NYC? What do you think?
