“connie & jimmy” is romantic nostalgia. We romanticize the thought of taking a horse-carriage ride, as if it makes us feel connected to our ancestors. It’s quite the opposite actually. To honor them we ought to observe the past and allow it to assist us in building a brighter future. We now know that the horse-drawn carriage industry is inhumane, dangerous to horses and people, and unnecessary. Alternatives are available. It’s time to make history!
“connie & jimmy” supports City Council Intro. 86A, sponsored by Councilwoman Melissa Mark-Viverito. New legislation calls for a phase-out of horse carriages in New York and replacing them with the 21st Century “Horseless Carriage”.
Gosh, don’t get pulled in. Boycott horse-drawn carriages.
