Despite the threat of steep fines and the inevitably of showing up on YouTube, some cabbies still flat-out refuse to take passengers to Brooklyn.

A Gothamist reader videotaped his experience as he tried to get a taxi to take him from the Lower East Side to Williamsburg at about 1:30AM on Saturday night, a fairly chaotic time traffic-wise. The driver not only refused, but also kinda threatened him. Shocker.
