I GOT THIS EMAIL THAT REALLY GOT ME EXCITED, BUT I MIGHT NOT BE IN TOWN WHEN THEY COME TO FILM IT.... CALLING ALL COLORFUL CABBIES....
"Hello, I work as a researcher for a famous Dutch TV program. In the light of the 400th anniversary of the landing of Henry Hudson, our program will come to New York to report from the city to fill three shows. I saw your blog on the internet, that is why I write you this email.
We are interested in New York taxi drivers, because they fulfil an important role in the streetscape of the city, and definitely know a lot about New York. That's the reason why I am looking for remarkable taxi drivers. Taxi drivers that are colourfull and funny, and would like it to tell about their lives en their city New York in front of our camera. Are you such a taxi driver or do you know such taxi drivers? Can you tell me a bit more about yourself?
I hope to hear from you soon, thank you very much in advance for your response! You can reach me by email, or phone me. Because I have a Dutch phone number, you can also send me your phone number by email and then I will call you on a moment that is convenient for you."
