I am licensed by the New York City Taxi Commission as a Taxi driver and I am licensed by the New York City Consumer Affairs Department as a Tour Guide. (This means that the passenger(s) is going with a guy who is approved by NYC and the vehicle has all proper insurance in effect.  I drive the streets. 

I was not sent by “central casting.”

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 podcast site and return to it frequently so you can hear the interviews I am adding.

You can also visit my cinema.  Join me on twitter

My pontifications are at blog.


**** A girl stands inside a barrel in Caracas, Venezuela.  Sometimes, you just can’t pick you neighbors.

The St. Patrick parade kicked off at 11 a.m. on Saturday at 44th Street and Fifth Avenue and went to 79th Street until 5 p.m. The parades had about 100,000 marchers and 2 million spectators.  Everyone was here.  Is there no one left in Ireland?

**** When Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali was shot dead this week in front of his Staten Island home, the stunning break in decades of relative mob peace set phones ringing alight with speculation as to the actors and motive behind his murder.  CNN interviewed a local resident who said, “there are lots of Italians on Staten Island” and they actually aired that comment.  Should I be afraid to give Italians a ride in my yellow mobile conveyance lounge?

**** The director of the FBI office in Boston is the only person in the United States who did not know that the college entrance procedure is corrupt or maybe he just doesn’t have any kids.  Put a couple of college administrators in jail and the problem is solved.  Go to pontifications.



**** The killings in Christ Church.  How did it affect the Muslim community in NYC?  We have 200 mosques.


**** One of the main new highlights will be New York City’s highest observation deck.  The observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards will be located 1,100 feet in the air and extend 65 feet from the skyscraper to give visitors unobstructed views of Manhattan and the Hudson River.  The observation deck nicknamed the “Edge,” is expected to open in early 2020.  Make sure you wear a parachute.

**** Never got 200,000 messages to keep cop killers in jail.  Grace Russell’s husband, NYPD Officer Michael Russell, who was shot down in Brooklyn 40 years ago.  The state Parole Board quietly shuttered an online service created to send letters opposing the release of NYPD cop-killers straight to the agency, with as many as 200,000 messages left in limbo. The bizarre discovery was made by her when she stumbled across the colossal foul-up when she asked parole officials last month how many letters came in opposing the release of her husband’s killer Sergio Voii who is up for parole. NYPD is having a fit.

**** Celebrity Sighting.  Cindy Lawrence who runs the Museum of Mathematics.  Find her interview at podcast.


****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.

**** 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 your choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
