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..

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.

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.  I am just the messenger.


**** Moving companies in Brooklyn report a marked increase in the number of Jewish families that are relocating out of New York City.  This is being attributed to a triple rise in the number of anti-Semitic incidents.  Some folk do not believe that this is the real reason.

**** How do you feel about giving China two million dollars a year to borrow two of their pandas?  If your school district is doing without books or your highways and bridges are falling apart, this is not such a good idea.  Only China could pull off this type of caper.

**** New York City companies are refusing to reimburse their employees who claim they are having a business meeting at a Playboy club.  The attitude is that it is not a venue conducive to good deals.  Gosh, a couple of breasts hanging over your soup seems to be a good deal.

**** It now turns out that NYPD is using defective equipment breath analyzers and many of the convictions for drunk driving are going to be thrown out.  That is what happens when you buy equipment from the mayor’s brother in law.

**** The Cardinal at our major catholic church, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, is putting up a fence to keep the homeless away.  Make up your own witty comment.

**** Radio City Music Hall is the 3,000-seat venue to visit at Christmas time if you like seeing a bevy of indentured lady dancers.  The good old days for this place were a great deal nicer and it even included a movie in the show.

**** Heat complaints in the city are going up and up.  Thousands of tenants are complaining to the Department of Buildings who never show up to investigate the landlords who make substantial financial contributions to the politicians. Bribes are common.


**** NYC has ended plastic bags.  I have been giving canvas bags to my tourists for years.


**** How would you like to hear about my recent spine surgery?


****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.

**** LISTEN TO THE LATEST VERSION OF “NEW YORK, NEW YORK..it is written and sung by Jack Servello LISTEN

**** AND ON THE FLIP SIDE..this is an intro promotion made by the folks at chnl in Kamloops, British Columbia.  LISTEN
