I have a love-hate relationship with NYC cabs. Of course, there’s the fact that they’re so quintessential NYC. The cabs instantly light up the streets and the city wouldn’t be the same without them.  The cabs are also lifesavers at 2 AM when there’s no way in hell you’re taking the train to Brooklyn, especially after spending the night dancing away in 5″ heels. But that’s only when you could catch one at that hour, which isn’t always the easiest task. If it’s raining? Forget it. It might be easier to win the lottery that night. When  you are able to catch one, there can be something quite special about them. I have so many great memories that involve NYC cabs!All in all, I’m more of a “I’ll walk or take the train..” type of girl.  I always have a pair of comfy flats in my bag, so no, I’m not walking the streets of Brooklyn or Manhattan in my sky high heels (although I could definitely last a long time). Aside from being cheaper, I find that taking the train is often so much quicker than hopping in a cab. You don’t have to deal with crazy Manhattan traffic or even worse, take the chance of getting a moody cabbie.If you are taking a cab, awhile ago, A CUP OF JO did a great post on how to flag one, if you need a few tips!

Speaking of NYC, a few months ago I did a post on my favorite eats,  incase you missed it.

  • Christina Lau

    This is exactly how I feel about NYC! I try to avoid cabs to avoid the cost, but sometimes a girl just needs a break from the subway. Love the coat by the way – I love following New York bloggers so I can see how people really battle the cold weather!

  • Lindsay Truax

    That coat is amazing. I love it with the jeans.


  • Dana G

    Amazing outfit! I'm with you on cabs, there's never one when I want one, and they are much more expensive than the subway, but something about them is just so NYC!

  • Vicki Wilde

    I'm with you, I would much rather walk or take the train than try and flag down a taxi. Taxis never seem to want to pick me up? I'm thinking in that coat you could totally walk through this cold weather!

    une application destinée à faciliter la localisation et réservation d’un taxi se trouvant dans une même zone que le client qui parfois a du mal à le localiser alors qu’il se trouve à moins d’un bloc de sa position.
    Taxi-Diali, comme son nom l’indique clairement, c’est une application bien adaptée à tout téléphone mobile fonctionnant sous le système Android. Une fois téléchargée dans chaque portable, du client et du chauffeur de taxi, elle permet à ce dernier d’être facilement repéré par son client qui cherche patiemment un taxi.
    Bien sur, pour le client dès que l’application lui signale la présence d’un taxi ou plusieurs dans la même zone où il se trouve, il aura toute la latitude de choisir et de faire appel à celui qui lui convient le mieux puisque toutes les coordonnées du taxi sont affichées dans son écran. Lorsque le client valide son choix pour tel taxi , le chauffeur du dit taxi peut également identifier la position de l’appelant grâce à la géolocalisation intégrée dans l’application et rappliquer directement à sa position sans qu’il ne lui la donne.
    Taxi Diali est un service gratuit qui permet de faire gagner beaucoup de temps et épargner des attentes indéterminées à tous ceux qui sont en déplacement dans une grande ville ou tout simplement à ceux qui veulent pour une raison ou une autre
