We didn?t use any taxi at all but they were everywhere, so if you need one just raise your hand and don?t forget to tip at the end of the ride.

The water taxis are something new in NY(since 2001). They have the same yellow color like the regular taxis and I saw many of them from the Cirlce Line Ferry. Some of them took people at pier 83 where the circle line starts but I?m not sure at what other piers they stop.

I also saw a lot of 3 wheel bicycles (pic 3) that work like a taxi for small rides, especially around Central Park.
