Things We Saw from His Cab
Max Cohen picks me up on the corner of Bond and Lafayette Streets, in downtown Manhattan, at the cabstand where he rents his car. He’s in a beanie, flannel, and jeans, with Rockstar energy drinks crammed into his backpack for fuel. For the next 24 hours, Cohen will pick up passengers around the city, adding up the fares in his head as he goes. He’ll also document the whole thing on his photo blog, Things I See from My Cab.
Cohen is not your typical cabbie — he’s a struggling filmmaker, getting his MBA, who drives on the weekends. He made an appearance in the New Yorker recently, when he tried to make the fastest lap around Manhattan (or something like that). But Cohen does spew cabbie wisdom: Never go to a gas station between 4 and 5, am or pm, he warns. There are only 10 of them in Manhattan, and this is the time that cabbies need to fill up.
Cabbies can always spot a puker. “It’s like the cabbie version of gaydar,” he says. Cohen’s craziest cab story? The tranny fight in his back seat. The weirdest thing he’s found at the end of a shift? A didgeridoo.
We rode shotgun with Cohen for a night to see what his blog is all about.

I’m excited too! Wish I could be there.
YES. Warner Bros. has unveiled a new trailer for “The Dark Knight Rises,” the 3rd and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. The film is out July 20, and we can’t wait for it.
I’m majoring in the New Media program. My focus is on web design but that could change. When I get there I am more excited to dorm though than for classes because I’m going to be a transfer student. I’ve done the college thing and it’s nothing new to me anymore :}…and I see we already follower each other on here so thats good lol.
