Brooklyn people know all too well about the taxi vs. car service conundrum. Nowhere is it more pronounced than in Williamsburg, where drivers bring hordes of people into the nabe but aren't anxious to take people in the Burg anyplace else. ("Bushwick? You know how to get there?") Enter Northside Car Service which has 300 cars and a long history of tangling with the local community board about crazy drivers, idling cars and more. Now they are in what one might call a "heap of poop" because one of their drivers hit a bicyclist and split. There was even a call for a boycott. The news broke more than a month ago, but now, even the Times has notice the stinking poop heap. [NYT]
