Levenson is a real estate developer and titularly an "animal rights activist" but seems more interested in acquiring the land on which two stables housing the horses and carriages are built. He even gave an interview after the election, saying Quinn could have avoided the attacks if she had just endorsed an anti-carriage stance. Ironically, the attacks were funded by a group called "New York is Not For Sale." Oh really? DeBlasio "emerged as the darling of the anti-carriage crowd" when he vowed during the campaign to ban the carriages from New York City streets the first week he was in office. Does anyone smell anything? It smells like horse manure, but I don't think it came from the horses.
