NEW YORK (PIX11) -- First, they gathered right in front of Gracie Mansion, but police moved the group across the street.
They refuse to give up their fight to ban horse-drawn carriages. And, now they're taking their fight to the Mayor's front door.
"The Mayor promised that he would do something," said Natasha Brenner.
They packed East End Avenue between 87th and 88th streets on the Upper East Side.
Police put up barricades, and members of the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages peacefully protested with others.
On the flip side, a spokesperson for for the Horse and Carriage Association told PIX11 News on Tuesday night, "They have a right to protest, however, it shows by protesting in front of the Mayor's home that this is extremely personal to them. And, it is inappropriate when there's children involved to bring a business issue to somebody's personal residence."
Protesters told us, they won't stop until something is done in the city.
On the issue, the Mayor's Press Office said, “We’re considering a range of options that move the horses off our streets, safeguard the animals, and protect the livelihoods of the men and women who provide carriage rides.”
