CabSense shows which street corners in New York City are best for catching a taxi cab.
Every street corner in the city is rated from no stars (little cab activity) to 5 stars (lots of cab activity). The rating for each corner is estimated by applying machine learning algorithms to the pick-up locations of over 170 million taxi trips. These ratings change based on the time of day, day of the week, and your current location.
* Use the map view to find the best corner near you or at another location
* Plan ahead with the time slider to see the best corners at a future time.
* Shake 'N Hail to catch a cab

The cab app for New Yorkers
This is the cab app you need if you live in NYC. Periods. Good conversation piece too! :)
Might Help But...
Fact that 1 people per hour is picked on, let's say 9th Ave and 20th St, on Friday at 2:45 am, does not mean that it is bad spot, maybe 300 empty cabs passed by going to Meatpacking. To get a cab u need to know basics: lights on=empty, lights off=taken; day shift ends at 5 pm/am so btw. 4:45 pm/am and 5:25 pm/am most of the cabs are on the way to and from garages, take a limo or a train; do no ask "can u take me to Queens," get inside and say address, if they complain, say u will report to TLC or say u will tip; cabs hate traffic and if they are empty they will not be in packed streets; they do not drive empty on streets that lead to bridges, so if u r in East Village at 7 pm and u wanna go to Brooklyn hail it like u go on UES; cabbies like UES and UWS; to hail just lift your arm, fast movement with hand signals that u go to Brooklyn, so they might not stop, also if u have a backpack or u are dressed as a hipster shows that u r going over the bridge; if u are at Penn or Grand Station when supply of cabs is low, do not wait in the line, walk 1 block and try there. Cabbies discriminate bridge and tunnel crowd only when demand for taxi is high (rush hours). When u lose hope check this application, it might help.
It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hoes again
Super convenient and especially good for rainy days and weekend nights when cabs are full. This app is really especially great because it gives the option of a car service for all of us living in BROOKLYN, and will also allow Manhattanites to have greater peace of mind and get over their fear of traveling to other boroughs.
