Were proud members of the Teamsters. And we're Entrepreneurs!

Like many New Yorkers, the Central Park Carriage Drivers are small businessmen.  They are up early to get ready for the day and will often work late into the evening.  Unlike most businessmen, they just happen to start their day in a stable -- feeding and watering their horses.  Their office just happens to be Central Park and seldom do they have a dissatisfied customer.  Just as other businesses throughout the City they are subject to various compliance, regulations and inspections.  In this case from five separate City agencies.

The difference between thee drivers of the Central Park horse drawn carriages and other entrepreneurs in New York is that the carriage drivers are proud members of the Teamsters -- a union formed by carriage drivers in 1903.  The Teamster logo reflects this proud heritage with its two horse heads, one looking to the right, the other looking to the left, over a six-spoke wheel.  The Central Park carriage drivers are proud to uphold this heritage.

We're Union; We're Entrepreneurs!
