2. Police Horses

There are six mounted police units throughout New York City, and the horse troops are stabled throughout the boroughs. One troop of horses are housed at Pier 76 on West 36th Street, a space that is also home to the NYPD tow pound. Other stables are located in Queens’ Cunningham Park, Brooklyn and the Bronx. For over a century, there was also a stable in TriBeCa on Varick Street, but the space was repurposed in 2011 to serve as a temporary general command post for a World Trade Center NYPD team.
