Photographer's Note

Every once in a while I come across a vintage yellow taxi. Yesterday I found this beauty in the Meatpacking District on the west side of lower Manhattan.

The iconic checker taxi was made by Checker Motors Corporation in Michigan. They produced almost identical models from 1956 until 1982, so it is hard to know exactly which decade this classic beauty is from. The company also produced private cars, but sadly they went bankrupt in 2010.

Finding one of these cars on the street is like finding a piece of old New York. In contrast to the vintage taxi, you can see the very modern Standard Hotel in the background.
