A beautiful short film by Abdul Jalloh about his father Alpha Bailo Jalloh who drives 3P65.
Abdul completed this with Reel Lives, a “non-profit filmmaking program teaching marginalized, refugee and war-affected youth to find an authentic voice through the medium of film.”

NYC Taxi Awards
Founded in 2011, NYC Taxi Awards is a mobile platform dedicated to improving the NYC taxi experience by promoting positive interactions between riders and drivers.
Honoring the best taxi drivers in NYC as voted by you.
While it’s raining small dogs and lightweight cats in NYC we took the time to do a test run of the Daron Radio Control Set NYC Taxi. that we found in Area Kids toy store.
It can’t really turn, but it is a ton of fun to run this thing in the halls of our office. We didn’t make a lot of friends today with our testing, but we definitely recommend the car for those that love taxis or wish they drove one.
We had the chance to begin working with some of the best young actors in NYC and our good friend Alvaro Gallego. Enjoy some film stills from our shoot as we edit the videos. As they say in the old country, “Mimes, taxis, and New York.”
Amazing video that has been making the rounds on the ol’ blog network. So cool, we include the full text from Juan F Saldarriaga included on Vimeo below.

Taxi! is an analytical model that maps the trip data for 10,000 taxi rides over the course of 24 hours. Geographic location data for the origin and destination of each ride is combined with waypoint data collected from the Google Maps API in order to generate a geographically accurate representation of the trip. We used data from taxi rides originating or ending in the neighborhoods of Lincoln center or Bryant Park. The visualization recreates a ‘breathing’ map of Manhattan based on the migration of vehicles across the city over a period of 24 hours, displaying periods of intensity, density and decreased activity.
This project was a collaboration between Tom McKeogh, Eliza Montgomery and Juan F Saldarriaga. It was done for SEARCH class taught by Mark Collins and Toru Hasegawa (Proxy), at GSAPP, Columbia University, Fall 2011.
We acknowledge the support of the CUNY High Performance Computing Center under NSF Grants No. CNS-0855217 and No. CNS-0958379.
