“Manuel’s Ride”

Manuel's Ride from Amaris Castillo on Vimeo.

The story behind “Manuel’s Ride”: This short piece came from an assignment I was given at Columbia Journalism School. I was tasked with following someone who helps New York City run. At 6 a.m. one morning, Manuel Feliz, a taxi driver for eight years, allowed me to tag along for his workday. He chose to be a taxi driver after being weary from working for years in a bodega. Feliz soon learned that being a taxi driver comes with its costs.
