    New York's scariest ride

    by scottishvisitor Updated Jun 14, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Big Yellow Taxi

    There is never a shortage of taxis all around the city...
    Driving conditions are mad especially during rush hour - a taxi ride can be a scarey & funny experience for you.

    Taxi!!!

    Yellow taxi's are plentiful and relatively easy to catch. Be sure to give cross streets or landmarks as a destination, as opposed to a specific address...

    Especially when it's been pouring like a Monsoon and then the temps drop by 20 degrees! And just look at how many cute gay boys I can pack myself into a cab with!

    Take a Water Taxi

    by EdinburghRoc Updated Oct 13, 2005

    New York Water Taxi seen down by the Piers.

    It would be cool to use the Water Taxi.
    I never used one myself.

    But I would think it would be fast and fun!

    Taxis are the fastest way of getting to places in new york city. as almost all the drivers are a bit crazy youll end up going from one place to another very fast.

    Yellow Cab

    New Yorker's cab

    From JFK airport to Manhattan or Manhattan to JFK is 45 $. It is cheaper when sharing with other passengers. It is more convenient if luggages are at hand.

    I love taxis!

    Taxis are an important part of NYC, however expensive they may be. I dont recommend the front- the speed gets scary.

    what is the collective noun for

    Taxis - No city in the USA has more per capita than New York. They're efficient and reasonably affordable. They do travel in packs, though.

    If you dont want to spend walking around get a cab. They are moderately proced and will take you where ever you need to go. Just tip them if you are happy with the service.

    Teh yellow cabs are all over the streets. So there's no problem to get one. Budget travellers should buy the metro-card. tehy offer weekly prices, so you can drive as often and as far as you like.

    It is not a bad way to get around NY. there are lots of cabs. At any time of the night or day, you should be able to find one. (Except from 2am, when people leave nightclubs).

    If you're taking a taxi, hold on! ... unless you're in a gridlock. The subway and the buses (surprisingly clean) are excellent mode of transportation.
