They are the remnants of a taxi empire in tatters.
Rows of yellow cabs, stripped of their once-prized medallions, sit parked illegally at a shuttered Queens gas station, ditched, government sources say, by their former owners, the disgraced and bankrupt "Taxi King" Gene Freidman and one of his former business partners, Michael Cohen, President Trump's estranged former lawyer.
"This is a blight on the community and it needs to end, and it needs to end now," said City Councilman Daniel Dromm of Queens.
Residents say cabs have been rusting away in this taxi graveyard along a block of Northern Boulevard between 71st and 72d Streets for more than a year, but that the number of abandoned taxis has surged in the last few months. Some of the taxis are vandalized. Many are unlocked.
"They're here all day long, you know, 24/7," Dromm said. "People could sit in there, they could be doing drugs in there, there could be crimes going on in there, a whole bunch of things that could be happening here."
The property's owner is listed in city records as Zinc Realty, a real estate company with ties to Freidman.
Sources say it's fallen into financial ruin, just like Friedman, who once operated the city's largest taxi fleet.
Freidman's empire collapsed as the value of taxi medallions plunged amid competition from companies like Uber, and he was battered by criminal and legal problems.
Cohen gave up his 16 medallions last month, a divestment demanded by the city after he pleaded guilty in August to tax evasion. The sources say several of the ditched taxis were once his.
"This is Trump's dump on Jackson Heights," Dromm said.
But Dromm said he's had next to no luck in getting the lot cleared.
"Work with us. You can't leave this like this," he said. "I get it, but this is unacceptable in our community."
The Buildings Department slapped the property owner with $5,280 in fines for illegally storing taxi cabs here. But the city says those fines have yet to be paid.
Attorneys for Freidman and Cohen did not respond to calls and emails from NY1.
Residents say they've grown tired of the taxi dumping ground.
"I would love to see this definitely gone and more space for people to, you know, move through and maybe have something back up in there," one person in the neighborhood said.
Something that's less of a bright yellow eyesore.
