Cover Story: Bruce McCall’s “The Cart Before the Horses”

2014_04_28_McCall_Carriage.jpg

“I’ve never been in one of those carriages—they’re too slow for this fast-paced life,” says Bruce McCall, the artist behind this week’s cover, “The Cart Before the Horses.” McCall, who lives near Central Park, sees the carriages everyday, but they have been on the minds of New Yorkers ever since Mayor Bill de Blasio made a campaign promise to abolish them. Not everyone agrees with that decision: a recent poll showed that sixty-four per cent of city residents support them, and the actor Liam Neeson, writing in the Times, has entreated the Mayor to reconsider. “I didn’t take a great political stance about it. I just thought it was funny to see the horses pulled by the driver,” McCall says.

“I’m on the side of the defenseless animals, but the other point about horses for me is that they clog traffic. I drive a lot in New York, and getting behind one of those carriages is a roadblock. They commandeer the road; they’re turning onto Seventh Avenue or Eighth Avenue to go to or from the stables, and all traffic has to stop for them. They always take precedence, and that seems weird. A nineteenth-century traffic jam in this day and age seems silly.”
