Taxi! (Only works in Manhattan)

No street hails for Queens commuters.

The Brooklyn Politics: It looks like the bill the legislature passed earlier this year to allow livery cabs to accept street hails in the outer boroughs like Brooklyn [and Queens] is officially dead:

A measure that would have expanded livery cab coverage to the outer boroughs of New York City will not be revisted during the extraordinary session.

This is a relatively fascinating development, as this was one of those bills that was only “controversial” because one special interest (the yellow taxi cab industry) insisted it was.
