Build Your Own Taxi
New York City taxi cabs in need of repair can make their way over to West 44th Street between 10th and 11th where a cluster of auto body and mechanical repair shops make their living. Anyone looking to customize their own motor vehicles with an iconic yellow cab fender or hood could also check the dumpsters out front.
The taxis pulling in for repair look a bit different from the envisioned taxis of the future.
Also interesting, West 44th Street runs directly over what I think is the Amtrack line, which passes through underneath; you can see the rail lines from either side of the street. Check it out on Google Street View.
