We heard about these, but never saw them, until now. London-style cab, registered and driving around New York picking up fares. witz.org was beginning to think this was an urban legend until we caught it dropping off somebody on Perry Street the other day. One crappy cameraphone photo later and PROOF!

Great for New Yorkers – these cabs are big as a studio apartment, and go for about the same price per minute.

Are there more planned? Anyone know? witz.org loves to use these while in the UK…
