"Hail taxi! Hey taxi!
Ho taxi! Yo taxi!
Where to Miss? Where to Mister?
Where to brother? Where to sister?
All around New York town!"
Take a wild ride in a yellow taxi that's "buzzin' down the street like a bumblebee," visiting famous New York sites along the way, including Broadway, the Empire State Building, Greenwich Village, and Central Park. This book is perfect for people everywhere who love New York City, and a fun multicultural jaunt into the Big Apple for kids everywhere.
A bus is fine, but it sticks to a line. That's okay if you've got the time. A train is a treat, but it's stuck on a track. That's a drag if you're late to get back. A car is cool but you gotta park it. A bike is groovy but you gotta lock it.
In a rush? No time to spare? Hail a cab to take you there. To the store or to the theater, Just keep one eye on the meter. As long as you've got the fare, New York cabs go anywhere! Anywhere you need to be- Directly from point A to B.
