Abstract

How do we measure distance between two locations when in New York City and can one only travel along streets and avenues? Taxicab Geometry is modeled after this popular question. Triangular taxicab geometry is an adaptation on the typical taxicab geometry. This alteration will cause alterations with definitions normally taken for granted. We will start from scratch with these definitions and build up.
