Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back
In New York it’s not all about the subway. If you need a ride there are different options:
The standard, popular yellow cab.
An gypsy cab, which is an illegal, unlicensed taxi.
A dollar cab, one of the illegal, unmarked taxis that used to go around Brooklyn at night, famous for letting as many people as possible on board, even in the trunk!
