   ****Mrs. Gabby’s KITCHEN (recipes that are gluten free or not)

 **** Yenta Yack from the Back of the Hack…(These are conversations and opinions that I have eavesdropped on in my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge).

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.

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)





I  have done hundreds of radio interviews for radio stations, including the BBC and most national and international outlets.  I have decided to turn them into podcasts for your listening enjoyment.  Visit this PODCAST site and return to it frequently so you can hear the interviews I am adding.

****Pampers us about to install changing tables in NYC.  It is about time I confess to how I swindled Pampers once upon a time.  Not twenty-four to a box.

**** Homeless in NYC may now sleep on the subways.  They will no longer be arrested or chased off the trains.  The Mayor said it was a good idea because the subway cars will no longer be empty late at night and that will contribute to the safety of the passengers who happen to have homes.  That is California logic.


**** In other news by our Mayor he is pushing to make prostitution legal in NYC.  Should be great for the tourist business.  Some people think he is a political prostitute.


**** Cuba Gooding Jr. was arrested this past week in a Manhattan “club” because he argued about the “price.”  Putting him in handcuffs was most unusual.  The place is a cop hangout.  In other NYPD news, three cops have committed suicide in the last two weeks.  No connection to the Cuba story.

**** Carlos Rodriguez is a security director at Madison Square Garden.  Rodriguez resigned from the NYPD, just eight months before completing his 20th year of NYPD service.  A day later he pleaded guilty and admitted he and an accomplice stole $100,000 from a drug dealer, with Rodriguez pocketing $45,000.  The perfect resume for the job.

**** Hong Kong’s legislature suspended meetings after clashes between police and protesters opposed to a bill that would allow suspects to be tried in mainland China.  Critics say the bill — now on hold — would undermine the city’s autonomy amid moves by Beijing to tighten its grip on the former British colony. The standoff is Hong Kong’s most severe political crisis since the Communist Party-ruled mainland took control in 1997 with a promise not to interfere with its civil liberties and courts.   Do Chinese folk living in NYC care?  Couldn’t care unless it has to do with the price of egg rolls.

**** Is Iran really bombing the tankers.? Do bagels have holes?  Ask Iran folk living in NYC.  Consumed with hate for the Iranian regime.

**** Lawmakers in New York, the epicenter of the nation’s measles outbreak, voted to end religious exemptions for immunizations, overcoming opposition by vaccine skeptics and others who said the measure infringed on religious and constitutional rights.  Adding New York to a small handful of states that do not allow exemptions on religious grounds, including California, Arizona, West Virginia, Mississippi and Maine.  Here are the four men partially responsible for the epidemic.

**** Anne Frank was bisexual?  The New York Times found it necessary to float this theory in its pages this past week. There is an interesting explanation and it has to do with the newspaper’s falling circulation numbers.

**** David Letterman of TV fame announced that President Trump is a degenerate.  This from the guy who announced on national TV that he made his female staffers have sex with him.  Or, lose their job.

**** Rent Control has been extended and the city’s tenants are cheering.  Landlords who have been making heavy monetary contributions to the politicians have been screwed.  Let that be a lesson to them about to whom making a payoff.  There is an AIRBNB connection, of course.



**** NYC has just ended plastic bags.  I have been giving canvas bags to my tourists for years.  Pay for the postage and I will send you one.


****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.
