I'm past the point of making a trip into the City and standing around forever hoping a corner-cab will appear so I can ride it. I may be a die-hard RFW buff, but I won't waste my time on a lost cause. Is my bitterness showing?
Yes, while the comment may seem negative, it's a true statement.
Before the two I reported above, last time I saw the small cabs was back in June (And I ride the 7 local train 4 days a week, most weeks).
I gave up all hope on finding an RFW on the 7 line back in November.
Now while I wouldn't say that there's no chance of finding a small cab, the chances of finding one are very very slim. Unless you have gobs of time on your hands, I wouldn't suggest making the trek out to queens to catch one, especially in this horrible NYC weather. If you do happen to have time, you better hustle out there soon because they won't be there long, especially with the new R142 conversions streaming in. Also, don't bring lots of stuff and share the space: There's some competition for that window (Some of the general public likes it too, especially little children).
