Riding through the streets of Manhattan with the wind in your hair and the skyscrapers rising around you can be a pretty gratifying experience. A massive, green, turn-of-the-century antique car is aiming to make that ride even better.
The new electric "e-carriage" that could replace New York's horse carriages was unveiled Wednesday at New York's Beacon Theater. Riding in the vintage nine-seater, which comes complete with phone chargers, seat warmers, luggage space and two novelty horns, is like sitting in a cross between a go-kart and a Ford Model-T. Old, respectable but undeniably kitsch and goofy at the same time.
