Taxi! Take me to the MCM store! (New York)

20-01-2011

New York is one of the most populated cities in the world and it is also a highly influential city for Fashion, Art, Finance, Education and much, much more. It is one of those iconic places everybody knows well, even those who haven't yet been. The Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, 5th Avenue are all landmarks seen again and again in films and TV shows, described in books and saturating our imagination.


Even getting a taxi in New York is something we all know how to do. We've seen how Carrie does it in Sex and the City - we've had six whole series and two films to watch and learn. It seems simple enough: put on your prettiest fanciest frock and raise your arm while standing in the middle of the road. Alternatively, look helpless and really sad in the rain and a handsome man will whistle and catch a taxi for you...


In reality, there are still a few things you may need to know about NYC taxis, and here they are!


First of all, you need to know empty cabs have their top light lit up and occupied cabs do not. A bit like in London. If it is sunny and you can't see the lights too well, simply stand on a street corner and hold your arm straight out, eventually a cab will pull up (even if a few might just ignore you, but that's part of the local folklore). Yes, it is fairly easy to catch a cab in NYC. What's not so easy is knowing how much to tip: tipping taxi drivers is customary, but not mandatory. However, if you got to your destination promptly and in one-piece, it is recommended to give between 10 and 20% tip depending on your level of satisfaction.


If you want to take a ride outside of the city, you will need to pre-arrange a fare with the driver - they will generally charge you double the meter fare as they need to plan for their return to the city.
