A phalanx of old Checker taxicabs pulled up outside Our Lady of Pompeii Church in the Village this afternoon for a wedding. Out popped a few bridesmaids and various nears-and-dears of the bridal party. We could see the bride sitting in the back of the green and yellow cab. For whatever reason, she didn't alight just then, but instead had the driver take another spin around the block. We wondered: Are cabs cheaper than limos or horse-drawn carriages?
