Arecibo Car Service
170 Fifth Avenue, Park Slope
Anyone who lives in Brooklyn, or has ended up there in the early-morning hours, knows that calling a car service can be a bit of a crapshoot. For those living in the Park Slope–Brooklyn Heights neck of the woods, Arecibo Car Service is the way to go. Most of the time, a sedan will be at your door within ten minutes (and that’s all that we ask, really), and they’ll charge a little less than their competitors. And if you ask nicely, they might just send a full-size van for hauling stuff home from the junk shop or transporting a bunch of your soused friends to Manhattan. A trip from Prospect Park to the Lower East Side costs $12. From the same neighborhood to JFK airport, it’s only $24. These prices are cheaper than a yellow cab, and with the rent you’re saving by living across the water, you can afford it.
