Photo by myself in Midtown.
A familiar sight when it rains. A whole line of cabs passed by this woman, having fares already.
It's much harder to find cabs in the afternoon and on stormy days. There have been times where I've tried in vain to find a cab in the rain. Gypsy cabs (non-yellow cabs that do not use meters) will pull by, offering to take you a few blocks for a high rate.
Gypsy cabs are safe, however it's best to negotiate a rate before you get into the car, to avoid a dispute.
Apologies, folks, I've been going through a photo slump recently.
This seems to happen every so often - life gets busy, and the inspiration wanes. Never fear, this time will pass.
