During my visit to the digital life conference in NYC, I exerienced something curious - the decision to walk a mile and a half in busy NYC streets or take a cab?
Admittedly, it's been a while since I took cabs in NYC, but I found it most difficult to catch cabs at the Javitz center or along most streets. Actually it could take almost 1/2 an hour to catch one.
Fares weren't too expensive - about $7 with tips, but very difficult to catch.
Would you spend $7 to get somewherebin NYC with a 5-30 minute wait or would you simply walk through the crowded streets and get there in 20-40 minutes?
