With public transportation so far-reaching in Manhattan on top of the arduous task of actually keeping a car in the city, gas stations aren’t places that most New Yorkers visit regularly. But for the city’s taxis and the few who do own cars, gas stations like the Mobil Station on Eighth Avenue and 13th Street in…
The privilege of getting somewhere quickly and relatively inexpensively has been offset by the price of being wedged between strangers with nothing inanimate to hold onto as the train lurches ahead.

CCC's "Drive-Thru" video series soldiers on with our latest episode, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI launch edition.
This morning, Classic Car Club Manhattan played host to a small media event, where the 2017 (or is it 2016?) Ford Focus RS was shown ahead of its 2015 NYIAS Auto Show debut.
Say goodbye to the Mercedes ML63. In 2016, it graduates to G-Class, becoming the GLE63, so we took one of the last hopped-up mini Mercs to Lime Rock Park's Winter Autocross see if the off-road Geländewagen badge is deserved. Here are five thoughts we had while hooning the bejesus out of a $114,000 race car…
Our 2016 Lamborghini Huracán, wearing Verde Mantis Green, arrived at Classic Car Club Manhattan just in time for our Thursday (2/19/15) members-only happy hour.
This week on AFTER/DRIVE, Zac and Mike join host Mike Spinelli to determine whether the new GT will be the raw, race-bred driving experience like our '66 GT40, or suffer from the driving nannies that plague so many modern supercars today.
Why no one should ever replicate Afroduck's drive around Manhattan, and what the City of New York can do about it
Sometimes, life throws inconveniences at you. You can deal with it by either passing the problem to someone else, or applying a dose of common sense, a heaping of elbow grease, and take care of it.
A friend and I recently booked a hotel room in Washington, D.C., for one night. The room came to around $190 total, or a reasonable-for-D.C. $95 per person. And the parking? $48 plus tax.
A lot of people think silver is a boring color on most cars but they're wrong–they probably just haven't seen a silver car at night in Manhattan. There's something about the way a silver car absorbs the light of the city like nothing else can.
Getting doored—that is, having a driver or passenger open a car's door into you as you ride by—is a constant, looming threat for urban cyclists. The point-of-view video above, shot near New York City's Union Square, shows exactly what it's like when it happens, but the real drama comes after the crash.
In what is probably a nightmare scenario for a lot of New York commuters, about 50 people were injured this morning when a ferry crashed into a dock in Lower Manhattan, according to news reports.
Answering the question of ‘will it hurricane?' these are some of the coolest cars I found in blacked-out Lower Manhattan. Up top is a '70s Lincoln Continental. Below are the GranTurismo MC Stradales of Maserati of Manhattan and a new Dodge Challenger across the street. Then there's the proud blackout Tesla. At the…
I have no idea what these two creations were doing on Franklin Street in SoPo. It's hard to find words how strange it was to see these out of the corner of my eye, glowing within the darkness.
"I DROVE A SEMI HERE –" I'm talking to a tough guy with a biker mustache working with a group of trucks pumping water out of buildings near the South Street Seaport, deep in the Lower Manhattan blackout. There's a din from the generators running around us, but he's just talking in that loud way that a lot of my…
New York's Fashion Week is a time when skinny people parade around in clothes that nobody really understands and look at even skinnier people in items that could existentially be considered clothing.
The intersection of Manhattan's Essex and Delancey streets has seen more than 130 injuries and three fatalities since 2006. This year, the NYC DOT banned all left turns to calm things down, but even the cops are breaking the rule.
CNBC recently compiled a list of the most expensive apartments in New York City and look whose car is parked outside of One57 and its $115,000,000 penthouse. Yes, it's the $8 million one-of-one Maybach Exelero perhaps owned by rapper/record exec Birdman.
