All Hail the TaxiLooking back at the history of New York’s iconic cabs
Your shirt is soaked through. An umbrella is useless against this torrential downpour.
Finally, you spot an available yellow cab. And you’re saved. On a summer day like this one—August 13, 1907—the first metered NYC taxicab hit the streets. The beloved Checker Cabs came later, plying the streets from the 1950s through the 1980s. And while today’s taxis sport the same sunny color, they’ve been updated with high-tech enhancements. So celebrate an urban icon with this taxicab-inspired collection.
