jdog...honestly, they'll be VERY lucky to get $10 bze. $15 is the going rate, and thats for a local like me who uses the same cabs all the time. i have ONE day driver who charges me $10, and thats only during the day. At night, i cannot get one for under $15.
Cab number 16 out of the central park taxi group is a price gouger. he will charge you up to $40 for the ride, and when you protest, he will show you a laminated paper supporting his ridiculous price. even other cabbies warn against him
the best tip...ALWAYS ask before you get in the cab. anywhere from $10 to $15 is "fare"
