|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)

Here are the True Tales for this week which I merely pass on to you. This is what passengers are talking about in the Back of the Hack.
**** Homelessness on the rise as Mayor DeBlasio cuts back on social services. August homelessness shoots way up. Why does this happen in this month?
**** Most folk here in the Big Apple think he was whacked. Jeffrey Epstein spent at least two hours locked up alone with a mystery woman just a day after he was taken off suicide watch at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. A visiting attorney said that he saw the young woman with Epstein on July 30, when the disgraced financier was transferred into the facility’s Special Housing Unit. The multimillionaire paid members of his legal team to visit him for nearly eight hours a day, so he could avoid his cell and sit in a room designated for attorney meetings. Maybe some muffky fuffky?
**** A Lower East Side condo owner turned his small apartment into a mini-village — by converting it into an illegal duplex with 11 sub-units that had ceilings as low as 4 ¹/2 feet high, officials said Friday. The illegal micro-apartments at 165 Henry Street are so cramped that condo owner Xue Ping Ni even put up bubble wrap as protection to keep residents from hitting their heads on the many low-hanging pipes. The bizarre arrangement in Ni’s apartment No. 601 — which was raided and shut down by the city Buildings Department — was compared to something out of a movie. Chinatown is the most congested area of the city and I show it on my tours.
**** Cops meeting their quotas and sending businesses out of New York City. Every place you look, hundreds of tickets are being given out even though the vehicles are making much-needed deliveries. A recent survey indicates that New York City is number one in losing businesses to other states. The cops even give out tickets to trucks involved with emergency utility repair. Ambulances will be next.
**** NYC has ended plastic bags. I have been giving canvas bags to my tourists for years.
****TV THEME (can you guess what show this music came from? AUDIO
****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 your choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
