No red lights on cab ride to Harlem

One of my favorite things to do in New York City is to take one of those late night cab rides.  Getting lucky enough to get a driver with the knowledge, skill,  experience and desire, to deliver what is nothing short of a form of artistic expression: a non-stop-all-green/no-red-light-ride from point of origin to destination.

Apparently I am not the only one who loves these rides.   As recently reported in the Gothamist, a cab driver reportedly hit 100 consecutive green lights and captured the inspired journey on film.

And in my favorite related video, a cab drove up the entire length of 1st Avenue from 1st Street to East Harlem’s 125th Street hitting all the green lights.
