When we try to learn a “New World Order”

we must remember the horse manure crisis

of the late 19 century,

and learn to do more with less,

then we can survive  a crisis.



From horse power to horsepower

Urbanization ultimately presented New York and Brooklyn with an equine crisis of mind-numbing proportions.

By the late 1880s, horses plying the roads were producing an estimated four million pounds

of manure a day, plus 40,000 gallons of urine.

Eric Morris, writing in ACCESS magazine, charts the fascinating rise

and demise of the urban horse.


In 1898, delegates from across the globe gathered in New York City for the world’s first international urban planning conference.


One topic dominated the discussion.


It was not housing, land use, economic development, or infrastructure.


The delegates were driven to desperation by horse manure.
