Redditor dweck451 posted this photo of a Mercedes E350 yellow cab he saw outside the Mandarin Hotel on 59th and Broadway.

Another redditor who happens to be a taxi driver knows the guy who drives it.


Cabbie here. I’ve talked to this guy before. He owns the medallion and still drives. He’s just an average guy. Very nice man. There is another Mercedes SUV and a couple of Lexus taxis out there too.

That must be a pretty nice surprise to hail a cab and wind up tooling across town in the backseat of a Mercedes. I bet that guy gets some seriously generous tips.
