|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.”
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)
These are my True Tales for the week of June 17, 2018, which can be heard on radio stations throughout the United States and the rest of the world. Take a look at this web site’s link SEARCH.
These are topics that are either discussed directly with me or are eavesdropped on folks who are in the back of my hack also known as my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge.
**** Lesbian couple kicked out of taxi in NYC after “kissing and cuddling each other on the back seat.” Taxi driver was a Muslim and it offended his sensibilities. I am thinking of allowing sexual intercourse as a promotional gimmick.
**** The city paid $12.8 million to settle claims of sex harassment or sex discrimination involving its employees – with the NYPD accounting for nearly a quarter of the settlements, records show. It coughed up $3.95 million to close 20 harassment claims involving police officers and brass. The largest payout — $817,500 — went to Officer Maria Lampley, who said in a lawsuit that a lewd lieutenant, Alexander Rojas, tried several times to kiss her in his office and blocked her exit when she dodged his advances. Rojas denied the allegations and said he doesn’t like being called “lewd.”. It is the donuts that get the cops horney.
**** The NYPD wasn’t the only agency with a high number of harassment claims. The city agreed to 18 settlements involving Department of Education workers who said they were harassed, costing a total of $2.1 million, records show. Even the Office of the Special Commissioner of Investigation — the agency that looks into bad-behaving education workers — settled a harassment complaint, paying a former investigator $48,000 in 2017. Health and Hospitals, another large agency, had 15 settlements, costing $1.78 million. Millions also go out to people who fall on our streets. A good way to pay for your vacation here.
**** A painting at the Hotel Edison on W 47th St. had the words PLACE LITTER HERE and they are seen on a trash can holding an African-American man. The New York Times called it “an object d’art.”
**** A study which used real and credible data, suggests that if someone tries to make a business out of taking a home off the long-term rental market and running it as a full-time Airbnb, it is virtually impossible to turn a profit. The average Airbnb host would need to find a paying short-term guest 216 days every year simply to cover the costs of their own long-term rental. Contrast this with the 46 days a year that the median Airbnb unit in NYC was occupied in 2017. The upshot: You can rarely make money converting a long-term unit into a full-time Airbnb. Here is a fairly typical Airbnb. Suckers.
**** Like it hot? Spend the summer at Marilyn Monroe’s house. The East Hampton cottage where the blonde bombshell and her third husband, Arthur Miller, vacationed is up for rent through Labor Day for a cool $55,000. The actress and her playwright hubby, who were married for five years, would sneak off to the Deep Lane cottage in the summer of 1957 to fool the paparazzi camped out at their primary rental on Stony Hill Farm. A year-long lease is also available for $68,000. My brother lived in the same Manhattan building where they had an apartment.
**** NYC Cardinal Timothy Dolan wants the illegal alien children that are currently in concentration camps run by ICE to be moved to NYC and placed in his churches. His flock is not happy with this type of God’s work.
**** The illegal alien pizza guy who was caught by ICE at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn is going to be separated from his wife and his kids while he gets deported. If they hang him, it will send a message. ICE agents are Gestapo who take bribes.
**** Sleaze taxi mogul best friend of Donald Trump is going to be sent to jail by Kimba Wood a federal judge whose credentials consist of being an adulteress and a Playboy bunny. Don’t get upset, I did not call her a slut.
**** Travolta plays Gotti in the new movie and the mafia wanabees in Little Italy are thrilled with the hero worshipping movie of a real bum who whacked people. I once had him in my taxi and we did not “cuddle” at all.
**** Authentic Russia is right here in Brooklyn. Have some caviar and borscht and vodka. Putin would win if he ran for Mayor.
**** Celebrity Sighting. Matt Damon not whacking anyone.
****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

**** 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.
