2008_09_taxiviol.jpgA violist with the NJ Symphony Orchestra was very lucky when the Taxi and Limousine Commission was able to find the $40,000 viola she left in a cab. Ann Roggen didn't take a receipt, but the TLC used GPS to figure out which cab had driven her from Fairway back to her Upper West Side apartment on Thursday. The TLC contacted driver Deniz Getting, but the night-shift driver was sleeping when the TLC sent messages on Friday. Fortunately, when he did get the messages, the viola was still the backseat! The Post reports that TLC Commissioner Matthew Daus himself returned the viola to Roggen, and Getting drove her to her concert in Newark. As for Roggen, who cherishes her instrument's the "unique sound," she promises to "always make sure to take a receipt."
