““Only in America, only in New York,” read the caption...

""Only in America, only in New York," read the caption alongside this December 1977 photo by @nytimes photographer Chester Higgins Jr. "A reindeer on a tram? What's so strange about that? One New Yorker thought nothing of it as she traveled, undisturbed and unimpressed, to Roosevelt Island on the Manhattan tramway. Her fellow passenger was going to the island to be the star attraction at a Christmas party for children." It seems to us that the #reindeer — not Dasher or Dancer, but "Richard" — had his wits about him. Why haul a sleigh when you can simply take the tram? We found this photo in our newsroom #archives, known as the "morgue." #tbt" By nytimes on Instagram.
