Come on the adventure of one of the few NYC female taxi drivers. I started this blog at the very beginning of my yellow cab driving career. I share some photos, good stories and frustrations all in the hopes of letting others know what it is really like on the other side of the partition. Enjoy!

Calm before the storm
Last week I worked on Sunday and Monday nights. Both were slow and uneventful. I tried working on the Tuesday and couldn't get a cab. I got to the garage around my usual time and waited and waited and there were no cars. Finally at about 6pm I gave up and went home.

So yeah. Nothing much to report about then and I was away for the weekend so I never got the chance to update anything. I promise. You are not missing anything.
Macdougal Street empty late at night
Last week was the calm before the storm, or so I am told. Starting at Thanksgiving is when alllll the tourists come into town to see NYC at holiday time and they take lots and lots of taxis. So, we will see. Tonight is supposed to be good because everyone is coming home from their Thanksgiving weekends, so that will be good. I have no firsthand experience of taxi driving this time of year, but I guess I will find out!
