Note the rare plumage of an empty cab not surrounded by yelling commuters.
Cab drivers can't get below 96th Street without 3 passengers, so they have to scrounge the bridges and Harlem and the Upper West Side to fill up before they can get to lower Manhattan.
If you're waiting in the freezing cab line by Madison Square Garden with the hundreds of other people stamping and snuffling in the cold, you'll wait more than a hour.
We love our tourists!
