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.

**** Crime has increased on the New York City subways, they say,  and because of that the Mayor is adding another 500 cops to the underground squad.  But, It is not an actual in increase in crime, the cops were just not reporting the proper statistics.  It still is the safest subway system in the nation.

**** More on the subway.  An increasing number of people are taking their pets on the subway. Rules are being toughened.  For instance, dogs have to be in a bag.  What do you do with a Rottweiler ?

**** Slowly but surely public clocks are disappearing from New York City’s sidewalks.  It is age and the lack of people who know how to repair them.  One of the funniest NYC jokes is about clocks.  I am telling it on air this week.

**** Is this guy an Army officer or a doorman at the Radio City Music Hall?  There was no reason for him to wear his dress blues for his appearance at Congress.  Maybe he thought he was going to a wedding?

**** Our Department of Transportation is thinking of charging resident motorists to park on our streets.  Better they should take care of the poorly marked lanes, the potholes and the streetlights that do not work.

****FedEx is being accused of not paying their fair share of taxes in the city.  One thing they know how to do is double park its trucks.  The company gets more parking tickets than any other business and doesn’t pay most of them.

**** Some subway stations (without people or trains) are being intentionally flooded in a quest to have them waterproofed before the next hurricane hits the city.  The last big one required the entire system to be closed or millions would have been drowned.

**** 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
