Photo by myself around 34th Street and 7th Avenue, in Midtown.
Some four-footed and two-footed members of the NYPD posed for me.
The NYPD still uses horses, mostly for crowd control. The crowds are so overwhelming in this area near Penn Station, every day. They help create a living blockade, keeping pedestrians out of the street.
Rounding the corner and encountering these huge creatures is a treat. Each time, I cannot help but stop and say hello.
Above, a photo from last year. There are horse lovers here in NYC.
