Snag a car service before NYC runs out of gas

With limited subway service and waits for the bus bridge now apparently somewhere between “one generation” and “eons upon eons,” you might be thinking it’s time to get around with a car service. Of course, on a day like today, with limited gas supplies and everyone needing to get around, what are the chances of taking a car at all, much less into Manhattan? Oy vey. Here are what’s happening at some of the local car services that we could even get through to.

Harbor View Taxi, 9419 Fifth Avenue, (718) 860-2506 – via Twitter: “We are operating with backup phone number and limited fuel, here for you as best we can.”
