Stuck on 8th Ave

Stuck cab, 8th Avenue
Photo by myself on 8th Avenue, around 36th Street.

A sight you don't often see: a yellow cab found itself stranded on Eighth Avenue last week.

Not all cabs are sedans. There are yellow minivans, too, which are convenient if you have lots of luggage.

It's always fun until your car breaks down! That's what I always say! Bon weekend, Kitty!

Now that would be a bummer.

Comprends-tu le français ?
Bonjour ! Je lis ton blog depuis longtemps mais je ne laisse pas de commentaires. Aujourd'hui, je laisse un petit message pour te remercier de tes photos.
Mon fils habite New-york et je vais le voir de temps en temps!
Je comprends l'anglais.
Bonne journée ! Claudine

Ha, Leif, true. I would hate to be stuck on a very busy street like that.

Hi James
Yes...somehow though the cabbie looks unperturbed!?

Hi Claudine
I understand a little bit of French. Thanks so much for leaving a comment!

I hope you visit your son soon. I love hearing how visitors feel about their NY experiences!

i have very little pity for NYC cab drivers. A mostly rude and insolent bunch
