As a sometime cab driver and all-the-time Off-Broadway phenom, I kind of know everything about urban transportation. Now that livery cabs can make pickups in Manhattan, yellow taxis will need to be more flexible about services they offer.
 

 
Here are 5 ways to use a yellow cab that may not have occurred to you:
 
#1) MOVING TRUCK. My meter ran for 5 continuous hours moving a family from Harlem to Brooklyn. We did 3 trips in 4 hours. Try to stick to foldable items like rugs, sheets, towels, window treatments,and small children.
 
#2) TOUR BUS. I’ve often been commandeered for the day to point out sites. Best tour ever? A sampling of New York City’s best hot dogs. The winner? Gray’s Papaya.
 
#3) GETAWAY CAR. I’m not saying rob banks, but yellows will park and poise for fast retreats from in-laws or clingy house guests.
 
#4) MOBILE LOVE SHACK. Many summers ago I circled Central Park 5 times to provide my backseat couple a romantic tryst. I got a huge tip. But the better tip came a year later when they hailed me again – this time with the infant they conceived in my cab.
 
#5 PIMPMOBILE. Or like the Mascot, use a cab to woo the opposite sex – whatever that is!

  • yes, they don’t tell you that when you get to nyc that you need to know where its open 24/7. but at least you got a good bagel *i hope. nyc water is inieresttng, the tap water is suppose to be the cleanest because it comes from an aqueduct, not sure how much of that water is pure from the drain now, but that’s why nyc pizza and bagels are better than anywhere else.. try to head over to brooklyn for some pizza. get on the subway, keep your eyes open, you’ll be entertained.i wish i was there with you, we could eat up a storm. but burn it off while looking for the next place to eat. dont forget to go to schillers! lower east side… thats some fun times. 😉
