New York City's Yellow Cabs Have Been Around Forever. 

Going through my photo archive from the last two decades has made me realise that many of the metropolitan scenes I captured so long ago no longer exist. As an example, consider this one-of-a-kind urban photographic poster of Times Square at night with yellow cabs. While the yellow cab was once as much a part of the city's identity as pizza, Broadway, and the Empire State Building, it is increasingly being passed over for other modes of transportation. Rich and poor alike formerly flocked to this city staple as the primary transportation option alongside subways and buses. Taxi drivers acted as unofficial city representatives, introducing strangers to the city and offering unsolicited guidance. 

"It won't be long before Uber replaces taxis in this city."

But a burgeoning fleet of automobiles summoned by ride-hailing apps has made yellow cabs, which currently number less than 15,000, an endangered species.
