This week’s Sunday Post is Road, and Jake says:

A road is a route, or way on land between two places, which typically has been paved  or otherwise improved to allow travel by some conveyance, including a horse, cart, or motor vehicle. Roads consist of one, or sometimes two roadways each with one or more lanes and also any associated sidewalks . Roads that are available for use by the public may be referred to as public roads or highways.

So, on that note, here is a road from New York City.  If you live in the city or have visited, you know that the yellow taxicab is a big part of the NYC roads, and the picture of a NYC road is incomplete without a taxicab. This picture shows Broadway by the City Hall in downtown Manhattan, close to Ground Zero.

    I was on this road when I was in New York last month. And you are right taxi cabs are everywhere. Good selection for challenge.

    I grew up in NYC, so thank you for the memory…there are MILLIONS of taxis…but not when you need one. 🙂

      That is absolutely true! And, that is true for all the 5 boroughs as well – try getting a cab on a rainy or snowy day – you wonder what happened to the millions of taxis. Do you miss NYC?

    Love NYC, and I’ve been in a few of those cabs, although I prefer to walk. There’s so much to see there.

      I agree – even folks who live here have a lot to see.

      Thanks Madhu – you know NYC is waiting for your visit, and then you’ll ride one of those cabs 🙂
