While New York St. Patrick’s Day Grand Marshal Loretta Brennan Glucksman had her escort of aides, so too did Samson the horse have his escort. NYC Sanitation Department (New York’s Strongest) members Francisco Torres (left) and Brandon Snyder followed the grand marshal’s carriage, pulled by Samson, up Fifth Avenue. Posted to Manhattan District 10, Torres and Snyder were ready for all eventualities. Riding in the carriage with Loretta was her grandson Liam Picco, while Samson was guided by driver Stephen Hand.
