Well, much has been said throughout time about the nature of New York Cabbies. You get all the clichés but when it comes down to it, well, I kind of like 'em.
For the one thing, the back seats are quite roomy and comfy, even for a bigger person like me. I got in and out of them with ease. In Chicago, it was a challenge getting in and out of the back of a crown vic.
Here, the ones I've been in, all look brand new, they're clean, and they even have a TV monitor in the back so you can see Chan 7 news, weather, etc. And, unlike Chicago, you can pay by credit card. A blessing if you haven't found an ATM and you need to get from point A to point b.
Yes, they can drive fast and they create their own lanes, but hey, they get you there quick. I tried private transportation back to my hotel today and I prefer a cab.
Hey, Rick Davis, you'll love this. A NYC cabbie told me today that McClain is going to win in November "because these two keep putting their foots in their mouths." My thought upon hearing that, is if a cabbie is saying that, you're in a good way.
