Company To Weigh In on Horse-Drawn Carriage Debate

Special to the Sun
March 19, 2008

Manhattan Mini Storage, the company that has gained notoriety for its politically themed billboards, will launch a new advertising campaign next month targeting horse-drawn carriages in Central Park.

Wading into a local debate fueled by animal rights activists about whether horse-drawn carriages should be allowed to operate in the city, the company will allow its customers to support a ban on the carriages by offering to donate $25 to the Coalition to Ban Horse Drawn Carriages for every storage space rented.

The horse-drawn carriage industry is arguing that the advertising and fund-raising campaign is part of a plan to outlaw the carriages that ferry tourists through Central Park and on Midtown streets so the storage company can buy the land currently occupied by two carriage stables. The stables are situated near real estate owned by Edison Properties, the company that controls Manhattan Mini Storage.

"Two of our stables are right next to a Manhattan Mini Storage," a public relations representative for the Horse and Carriage Association of New York, Carolyn Daly, said. "We believe this is about a real estate interest" and that Manhattan Mini Storage "does not have a horse or animal interest whatsoever."

Manhattan Mini Storage said it has no interest in the properties. "Manhattan Mini Storage does not want to buy their property," a vice president of marketing, Stacy Stuart, said. "We have nothing to do with their industry. It's truly just a matter of bringing attention to the facts of what's going on with the animals."
