Sleeping in a taxi - level 2
Travelling to New York City can be expensive, but one entrepreneur can cut your accommodation costs dramatically. His customers can sleep in the back of a taxi cab for only 40 dollars a night!
The taxi is in the city centre – only three stops from Times Square and one stop from Grand Central Station. People who try it also have a great view of Manhattan.
The so-called “rolling rooms” already attracted a lot of attention from tourists. There is, however, one little problem. There is no bathroom in the taxi, but the customers can use the bathroom of some restaurants.
Difficult words: entrepreneur (businessman), accommodation (a place for somebody to sleep), attention (interest).
