Culture on the Cheap
Bad Ass Cab In Bed Stuy
One thing I adore about Bedford Stuyvesant is its residents’ affection for customizing their property. This can be as simple as painting flowers on one’s front door or as complex as building a dragster that looks like a coffin. Whatever tickles their fancy, they make it happen. This, dear readers, is what makes this neighborhood such a treasure. Speaking of treasure check out this, the BADDEST CAB to grace the streets of New York Shitty.
I found this old Checker cab on Bedford Avenue. While being a Checker Cab in and of itself is pretty damned neat, this motor vehicle has a number of appointments which make it extra special.
Its grill is sports a wreath.
The front window is festooned with fringe like Cheech and Chong’s ride in Up In Smoke.
One of those light-up waterfall pictures has been placed in the backseat for the passenger’s entertainment.
And last, but hardly least, when the owner of this vehicle is too indisposed to drive, he (or she) has no problem getting home on all fours!
