Cab Spotting

Counting cabs on Saturday February 20, 2016 from the second floor window of the NYC public library on W. 114th St. and Broadway from 1:24 p.m. until 1:26 p.m. when the security guard became suspicious and asked me to stop.

How many cabs do you count? A:25 B:28 C:29 or D:[See the answer below]: NOTE: some cabs are green in addition to the more familiar yellow. Also several illusions have been added to throw off the count. Good luck!

The answer is: C’mon man, who has time to sit around counting cabs?

That is the right answer. After the 3rd photo I had to stop. :-)

Thanks for the flip through movie, Chasing Yellow or Green. In Morgantown, we count taxis on one hand; the old company runs about 3 cabs a night, the new company, 2 cabs. The firms are competing, but you’d need to wait a long time for a pick-up. If you counted cabs after six o’clock passing on the Main Street, called High Street, you’d likely count 2 cabs every 45 minutes. If it’s a dry night okay maybe 5 cabs, if it’s cold and rainy and you’d prefer not walking home, maybe 1 taxi passes by on High Street. But to get a cab, no matter how many pass by, you’d have to phone one of the cab companies (here, you can’t flag one on the street); and the dispatcher will tell you, your next in line.
