We are New York.
The carriage drivers of New York City are dedicated horse people. Central Park Carriage Co. is the only online venue that exclusively represents the men and women who work hands on with the famous carriage horses of Central Park. We are experts on what we do, and we are proud to live and work here. When you take a carriage ride, you’re getting an authentic New York experience.
As diverse the city we call home
The carriage industry is a colorful, rich portrait of working-class New York; nowhere will you find a better cross-section of people who represent that demographic.
The approximately 300 carriage owners and drivers are the very definition of “diversity;” newly arrived émigrés from Russia and Haiti, first-generation Americans of Irish and Italian descent, who took over the business from their fathers before them, as well as folks who hail from or whose lineages can be traced to Israel, Turkey, Poland, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Belgium, Mexico, England, El Salvador, Grenada, Canada, China and more.
