My wife and I took a trip from Brooklyn Heights to Soho via cab. I snagged a linen blazer from Uniqlo (My go to spot for basics) for $59.99.  

We also learned an important tactic in the  art of cab flagging.  Wait for it……hop in the cab 1st before telling the driver your destination.  That way if he/she does not like your destination, he/she can’t drive off (For NYC Cab riding only).
