The Cydesdales take Manhattan, for a day

Visitors to New York City expecting to see the iconic horse-drawn carriages in Manhattan might be excused for any confusion on Friday caused by brewing giant Anheuser-Busch.

The company trotted out -- literally -- its eight-horse team of Clydesdales to celebrate the official opening of its new Commercial Strategy Office by reenacting an historic 1933 delivery of Budweiser beer, this time to Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul.

The team transported company CEO João Castro Neves and a case of replica 1933 Budweiser bottles to the new premises on 24th Street. Back in '33,  Anheuser-Busch made a similar delivery of Budweiser to then-Governor Al Smith to celebrate the end of Prohibition.
