The New York Diet: Exercise

After quite enough walking, it was time to jump in a taxi and who better to flag down than Gene Salomon, one of the New York City’s 40,000 yellow-cab drivers.


He’s just published a book, a compilation of just a fraction of the stories he has accumulated over nearly four decades of taxi driving and agreed to take me on a trip to explore Brooklyn, from Brooklyn Heights right down to Coney Island and Brighton Beach: read my article for The Independent to find out more.


For more stories from the mean streets of New York City, read Gene’s blog here.
