THE CABBIES
Thirteen.org went out to the streets of New York City to talk with cabbies from around the world about many of the issues discussed in the TAXI DREAMS film. To view the video clips: Modem users click on the "Low" icons, high speed DSL or Cable users click on "High."

THIS FEATURE REQUIRES RealPlayer PLUG-IN.

"I feel the freedom..."
AMERICAN DREAM LOW HIGH
"A picture was painted, that life was easy here, but when you get here, it's a different story..."

NEW YORK CITY LOW HIGH
"New York is known all over the world as the land of opportunity. Not America, New York!..."

"I already sent [my son] back, I want him to learn my language, my traditions..."
GIULIANI LOW HIGH
"Giuliani would make a good taxi manager..."
CRIME LOW HIGH
"I saw one coming at me with a broken bottle..."
HEALTH LOW HIGH

HOMELAND LOW HIGH

Note to high-speed users: Some users of cable and DSL connections have noted that the picture in the "High" versions of the video clips freezes. We have found that re-installing the latest version of the free Real Player fixes this problem in most cases.
