Equestrian New York: Lower Manhattan History and Horses

Did you know that in the 1880s New York and Brooklyn combined had an estimated 160,000 horses?  Well, minus all the manure, many wonderful vestiges of equine life are still visible in the city as well as tributes to the horse’s role in the history in the urban environment.   There is evidence in the architecture and historical record and an incredible array of equine art throughout the five boroughs!
