    On the horse carriage issue, there was also an op-ed by Liam Neeson on the NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/15/opinion/carriages-belong-in-central-park.html

    If a Jedi Master says so, these are the carriages we are looking for. 🙂

    I don’t want to see the horse carriages in Central Park replaced by dinky fake-vintage electric cars driven by costumed charlatans.

    If they insist on getting horses out of the park, then they should be replaced by electric horses. We’ve got a ton of tech entrepreneurs in this city. Build me an electric horse!

  • Jeffrey Baker

    Ha! The Hummer ran into the bus for causes unknown? How about because it was going the WRONG WAY down 1st Ave?

  • TomG

    Can’t wait to dodge the piles of glowing electric horse crap.

  • Poo poo dodoo

    The horse robot will poop organic compostable faux-caca; no-skid type. Ride on.
