In response to your Dec. 22-28 editorial “Avella: Pull on the Reins,” I must agree with you for calling state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) “a fighter for the people.”
But I could not disagree more by your defense of the horse-drawn carriage industry. There is nothing romantic about seeing horses work in all weather conditions and then have to trudge through traffic up to 2 miles to their West Side warehouses.
There is an easy solution to your concern for job loss: The carriage drivers whose life ambition is to ride tourists around Central Park can use their own blood, sweat and tears and ride pedicabs.
