Living in New York City

Classic New York City Taxi

Old fashioned New York City Taxi.

I saw this old fashioned taxi cab parked on the side of the road.  I assume it’s still being used, but I could be wrong.  Maybe someone bought it and is using it as a personal vehicle and they enjoy the novelty of driving it.

I don’t ride in taxis much here.  They’re way too expensive.  With a little foresight and time management, you could save yourself 20 dollars or more and just take the bus or train.  I guess a lot of people do use them though, because sometimes I get the impression that there are more taxis on the roads here in the city than any other types of vehicles combined.

Hi! I have a Master's in History (2019) from City College of New York - CUNY and I'm an Army combat veteran. I currently have 3 cats and live in New York City. The best part of living here are the museums and the food!

I love manga, anime, history, sci-fi, video games, and technology. I'm an avid reader! I'm currently learning Japanese and reading up on Buddhism and Minimalism. I also have an interest in religions and mythology in general.

YOU SHOULD! London is amazing! although I've never been excited to live there because it's where I'm from … if that makes sense?

Ya. I'd like to go to London. I know what you mean though. I'm not very excited to go to places I've already been or lived in. Being in NYC for me is exciting, but mostly because I'm back home from being abroad for so long. I suppose it doesn't hold the same magic for me as it does for someone who's never been here.

there was a decommissioned cab like that, that was used in Joe and the Volcano (tom hanks). Well, that belonged to our present Governor-elect.
