The carriage rides are great for tourists traveling to New York for the holidays. They are also great for native New Yorkers to take some time to appreciate the beauty and magic of Christmas in New York City.
As it is a private horse and carriage ride, only your group will participate. There is a limit of 4 people. But that’s great for social distancing purposes, right?
