Seems the Big Apple has a new logo design on their taxi fleet. Gone are the days of this second-rate, a kindergartner-could-stencil-this logo and design.
Welcome new, jazzy, up-to-date design.
Seems, though, that our neighbors to the north are chagrined by the new design. So much so that the New York Times is running a week-long series on the negative reaction.
Personally, I think it looks great. World class even. Better than the slap-dash old logo. Besides, at least New York City has a cab company and system that makes sense. It's certainly better than what we've got here, which is a mess and mix of crappy cars and dime-a-dozen companies. At least the zone system is finally going away.
Although, if the D.C. Taxi Cab Commission was smart, they'd keep Zone 1 intact and make any travel out of that metered. Regardless, and getting back to the point, bravo NYC!
