Workers maintain vehicles in a taxi garage in Queens, New York City, on Wednesday. The owner of the garage and taxis, who preferred not to be identified, said there are 1,000 plants in the shop (watered by hand twice weekly) and that they serve to clean the air: "I like to be in a nice environment, a clean environment. That's why all my cars are hybrids and that's why we have all the plants." John Brecher / NBC News
