North Of Little ITAly
It's not Little Italy because it's not particularly Italian; it's not Soho because it's a bit too far east; and it's not Lower East Side because it's a bit too far west. Elizabeth, Mott, Mulberry and Lafayette Streets between Prince and Broome. The acronym has caught on.

Since your a seasoned pro in New York can you tell which cabs go to which garages by just roof top lamps or certain markings or stickers?

Hi, MJ - there are two kinds of "rooflights", as they're called: one like the one in this shot (it's not old), and the other is the illuminated advertisement that runs the length of the roof. There are certain markings that do tell the knowledgeable observer which garage the cab belongs to. Some garages have distinctive rate signs on the doors. My garage, for example, is the only one in the city with a red rate sign (you can see it in my post "Pigs Fly"). Other markings on the trunk or bumper may have numbers that are significant to that particular garage. For example, let's say a garage has 120 cabs in its fleet. It may have its own numbering system from 1 - 120.
