The taxicabs of New York City, with their distinctive yellow paint, are a widely recognized icon of the city. Taxicabs are operated by private companies and licensed by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. The Commission is a New York City government agency that is best known for its responsibility for the more than 13,000 taxis operating in the city. It also oversees over 40,000 other for-hire vehicles, including "black cars", commuter vans and ambulettes. "Medallion taxis," the familiar yellow cabs, are the only vehicles in the city permitted to pick up passengers in response to a street hail.|
Clementoni HistoryConsidering how Italy is well known and often associated with fine art and rich culture, it only makes sense that a well established Italian jigsaw puzzle manufacturer would be known for similar qualities. Clementoni produces puzzles with iconic paintings from many of the great masters as well as breathtaking photographs of land and cityscapes. In addition to creating a line of jigsaw puzzles with elegance and attention to detail, Clementoni also uses recycled and other earth-friendly materials in their commitment to the environment.
