Is there snow in NY today? Thinking of a carriage ride through Central Park The quiet peaceful crunch of snow beneath hooves of white horses—

Ah, memories! New York City and carriage rides: Who doesn’t love them? Well, you better hurry. Because NYC Mayor-elect de Blasio has decided that dastardly horse-drawn carriage rides are the most pressing issue of our time.
"You have a lot of problems in your city. What will you do first?"
"Ban horse carriage rides."
"Ban horse carriage rides."—

No, for serious:
It’s tradition for NYC mayors 2 ban innocent things. For Bloomberg, it was large sodas. For de Blasio, it’s carriage horses.—

It’s funny, and depressing, because it’s true.
Laura Ingraham entered for the mix with a winning suggestion:
If De Blasio wanted to cut down on horse manure in Manhattan, he shd have tendered immediate resignation, not banned the carriages.—
