Nicolae Hent often would begin his day at JFK Airport, where he could clean his taxi while awaiting what might be a $70 fare before driving into Manhattan.

No reason to go to the airport now.

Nor does he see any point in heading to Manhattan earlier, instead.

“No one wakes up before 12 in Manhattan anymore,” Hent said.
