|As a licensed New York City Taxi Driver who also is approved as an Official NYC Tour Guide, I come in contact with New Yorkers, people from many States and from the rest of the world. These are the True Tales that they are talking about in my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge.
For those folk who don’t have time for a full day tour, please ask about my new half day tour. See my tour page.
Moving to NYC? Take one of my get acquainted tours to find your apartment or house.
Also, ask me about my newest tour which I call “Cinema.” Pick your favorite NYC location movie and we will explore the actual scene sights together. How about “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or maybe “Ghostbusters.”
Or, you can take the tour “A Day with Al Capone” where we spend the day seeing where he whacked people and conducted his business.
Also, ask me about picking you up at the end of your ship cruise, give you a tour and take you to the airport so you can fly home.
Pressed for time? Ask me about my half day tours..Ideal, if you are thinking of moving to NYC and would like to just see some residential neighborhoods.
Special attention to the kiddies, the elderly and the special needs folks.
Take a look at 1911, the year I was born. (only kidding)
I have done hundreds of radio interviews for radio stations including the BBC and most national and international outlets. I have decided to turn them into podcasts for your listening enjoyment. Visit this iTunes podcast site and return to it frequently so you can hear the interviews I am adding.
You can also visit my cinema which is at video.
**** Taxi bookings to Kennedy and Newark, our two international airports, have been canceled at all time high. The flights to France. I imagine, are mostly empty.
**** The monument honoring Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle — which survived an attempt to have it removed because “he stole the land from the Indians” will now be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The National Park Service last month added the 126-year-old, 76-foot statue near Central Park to its list of protected landmarks. He never ever landed on the North American continent. The guy did not leave a tip. I drove him around Hispaniola in my yellow mobile conveyance lounge.
**** Our Mayor du Blasio is knocking down our bodega artwork by having the Building Department give out summons for too much signage. The bodegas are the life blood of the poor neighborhoods. I always suggest lunch at one of them on my spectacular tours.
****The New York City Police Department is going to start using drones for surveillance. The first salvo will be in Times Square on New Years Eve. Operators will be experienced Nintendo players who are probably not old enough to shave. My prediction is that the project will end after a tourist is hit in the head by one.
**** The elChapo trial continues in federal court in Brooklyn, the drug dealing borough of the city. The jury was shown a video on one of the criminal submarines. Was the dope sent “up the river” and what does that mean anyway?
****TV THEME (can you guess what show this music came from? AUDIO
****THE SNEAKY CAMERA (the hidden camera)..a growing collection of new yorkers are unaware that they are being watched by a certain taxi driver. new ones are added from time to time. take a peep at SNEAKY(Please note: when playing a movie on your computer, you should diminish the size of the frame. If you have a problem, please contact me
****AND THAT NEAT MOVIE HOUSE ALWAYS SHOWED A DOUBLE FEATURE AND HERE WE ARE WITH A SECOND FLICK. This is a trip around the city in the famous yellow mobile conveyance lounge.
**** Hear what some happy tourists had to say about my tours, just go AUDIO
**** Here is an interview I did with a tourist and it was presented on radio 702 in South Africa. from time to time, i do this and the tourist gets to be famous. The radio stations love this feature for their listeners. AUDIO
**** To hear broadcast spots about some of the places where folks are taken to, listen to these commercials that were created for a “visit new york city promotion” at SPOTS
****Please note that I encourage folks planning on coming to NYC to write to me for some advice. Beware the online trip advising sites that are written mainly by public relations people to promote their clients’ services. Many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that. I do not “rate” things, but I sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
