New York City is colored golden yellow with spots like a Seurat painting.
The NYC cab may be as iconic as the Statue of Liberty or the Brooklyn Bridge.
There are so many taxis on the road that all other vehicles feel like visitors in a foreign land.
Even the buses feel out of place.
Cabs manuever their way through traffic, jockey for position…
and completely disregard what I consider to be a safe distance between moving vehicles.
It’s taxi cabs versus pedestrians. I wonder how many times a day, on average, each cabby imagines running someone over?
We took several cab rides through town, and even one ride on a pedi cab. Our peddling driver was every bit as agressive as the auto cab drivers. He biked down the middle of the street, weaving in and out of the traffic as if to say, “you gas pedal cabbies are pussies”.
Taxi cabs come in every make and model, but they all sport the same golden yellow paint, like a splash of sunshine on what can be a drab and dirty city. I imagine the streets with nothing but yellow cabs and think I would like the look.
