remonraimu When your in the city area somewhere like Manhatten there are yellow taxis and normal taxis (which tend to be cheaper) that run on norm. In smaller shopping areas like downtown Brooklyn or anywhere else there are more normal taxis around.

But if your ever around shopping areas you stand on corner and wait a few, then once you see one near by thats empty, you put your hand out, they notice u and drive over. Then u tell em where you wanna go. This is called “Hailing” Normal taxis have set destination prices and yellow/green taxis go by this thing called a Ticker? I think and its like a calculator where the more they drive the higher the price goes.

I personally do take those expensive ass taxis tbh, Unless its dire or if im just going a few blocks and cant train or bus it. Calling in is common too if you know a near by service and have their card and don’t really live around busy areas where u can just go outside and get one. =w=


This year, the sun will set on the grid with half the disk above the horizon and half below on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 8:16 p.m. EDT.

1. Arrive 30 minutes before the sun sets on the grid.
2. Positioning yourself as far east in Manhattan as possible, but ensure that when you look west across the avenues you can still see New Jersey.
3. Clear cross streets include 14th, 23rd, 34th. 42nd, 57th, and several streets adjacent to them.
4. The Empire State building and the Chrysler building render 34th street and 42nd streets especially striking vistas.
