One of the best places to hail a NYC taxi cab is standing on York Avenue and 72nd Street, True or False? Tenth Avenue at 43rd can get you just as many taxi hails in the morning as Vanderbilt Avenue, directly adjacent to Grand Central?
The answers to both questions are TRUE. This is just some of the fascinating data contained in an article in today’s New York Times entitle, “Need a Cab? New Analysis Shows Where to Find One”
Here is some of the informative information in the article
