Everything You Need To Know About New York City Taxis
Taxis (also called cabs) are a convenient way to get from place to place in the city. Surprisingly, they can be an affordable option when you have a group of people moving around together. They also offer the added convenience of avoiding waiting and bringing you right to your destination.
Hailing a New York City Taxi
Hailing a cab is as simple as stepping off the curb and holding out your arm—it only gets complicated when you need to figure out why many New York taxis seem to drive by without stopping for you.
The trick is in the lights atop the cab.
● When just the center is lit, highlighting the medallion number, the cab is available.
● When the medallion number, as well as the side lamps are lit, the cab is off-duty.
● When no lights are lit, the cab already has a fare they are bringing to a destination.
Women Who Didn’t Vote for Hillary Clinton ‘Voted Against Their Own Voice’
Wednesday in Boston at Inbound, a marketing conference, former first lady Michelle Obama said women who did not vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016 “voted against their own voice.”
Obama said, “Quite frankly, we saw this in this election. As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.”
She continued, “It doesn’t say as much about Hillary and everybody is trying to wonder, ‘Well what does it mean for Hillary?’ Well no, what does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates and many of us said, ‘That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing we’re told to like—the voice we are told we are supposed to like. You bought into that.
