We need your help if you live outside the United States.

The ongoing petition on unfortunately is only for people who live in the United States. To address all those who wanted to sign but could not, we have begun a new petition for those who live in other countries.

Please sign if you live in any other country but the US. If you live in the US, you can sign the original petition:

As potential tourists to New York City, you have a lot of clout. Tourism is big business. But we know that people do not come here to take a carriage ride. They visit NY for its world renowned theater, music venues, excellent museums, exciting night life, world class restaurants and shopping or just to walk and relax in Central Park but not to take a carriage ride
