Yes — it’s a little grainy. But it’s been months since anyone sent in a photo of a taxi crash and an abnormally large number of readers seem to take perverse pleasure in these incidents. MUW reader @kale1919 reports this happened around 7:30 am, in the southbound lane of Broadway near West 93rd. Crappy way [...]
Posted on Wednesday about a taxi crashing into scaffolding at Amsterdam & 106th. MUW reader Roger sent in this photo of another crash that took place later in the week.
Haven’t had a photo of an UWS taxi crash in a while, but that drought has come to an end. A cab plowed into scaffolding at the corner of Amsterdam & 106th around 2:00 pm Tuesday afternoon.
Seems as though there was some bumper car action of sorts yesterday afternoon on Central Park West. Apparently a taxi in the northbound lane clipped a motorcyclist, who in turn skidded into the southbound lane and bumped into a mini-bus that was dropping off kids from a day camp. Thankfully, it seems as though no [...]
Click for full-size photos Yet another taxi crash on the Upper West Side — the third in five days (previous coverage here & here). This most recent accident took place at Broadway & 86th last night, I think shortly after 8:00 pm.
Was saying the other day how I hadn’t received any taxi crash photos in 2012, and now we have our second in three days. MUW reader Kris sent in this photo yesterday of an accident at Broadway & 103rd. I don’t know why, but that intersection has some seriously bad karma for taxis… Back in [...]
Click for full-size version I was just telling someone during lunch yesterday that I hadn’t received any taxi crash photos in 2012 yet… a few hours later @healthydiarrhea sent in this pic.
Click photo for full-size version Scary scene in front of the AMC Loews movie theater at 1998 Broadway (btw. 67th/68th) on Tuesday afternoon, where a taxi apparently jumped the curb injured four people. MUW reader Stephanie happened to be at the scene and captured this photo. Per Stephanie:

It’s been a while since there’s been a gold old-fashioned taxi crash on the Upper West Side — this one happened last Thursday at Broadway & 103rd. MUW reader Kris sent in the photo and this note: It was quite a noise. Both had passengers, the couple in the one going west on 103 were [...]
Last week it was “Taxi vs. Horse,” and today it’s “Taxi vs. Bus” (perhaps a rematch from their last meeting in May?).
Trying a out a new feature for tonight — the MyUpperWest Week In Review: Neighborhood fixture Calle Ocho re-opened at their new location in the Excelsior Hotel . Summer Restaurant Week was extended to Labor Day . A taxi crashed into a horse carriage . The 41st Season Of “Lincoln Center Out Of Doors” kicked-off [...]
You’ll have to forgive the photo quality, but it’s actually pretty good considering it was taken at night from what looks about 20-30 feet away. I also had to blow it up a bit.
It was just a couple of days ago that MyUpperWest featured a retrospective of some of NYC’s finest taxi drivers’ work… and now we can add Taxi vs. Garbage Truck to the growing list of smash-ups.
What’s going on with taxis crashing on Central Park West? First it was Taxi vs. Bus. Then it was Taxi vs. Ambulance a few days later. Also let’s not forget the taxi crash NEAR Central Park West on the 97th Street Transverse.
