NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Move over, New York City firefighters, there’s a new sexy pinup calendar in town.

Some of the city’s cabbies bared their bellies and chest hair to strike a pose for the 2015 NYC Taxi Drivers Calendar.

Some of the pictures include a topless cabbie playing with a bunch of puppies, another driver enjoying some baked goods at Levain Bakery and another cabbie in a fountain.

But 1010 WINS’ John Montone spoke to some women who didn’t find the calendar very sexy.

“I think that’s really disgusting,” one woman said.

“Ripping the shirt? What is that?” another woman said.

“I think they look crazy,” another said. “I don’t like the chest hair. That looks crazy.”

Some cabbies outside Penn Station defended their colleagues who posed for the calendar, saying the taxi industry is not a breeding ground for gorgeous guys.

“We’re not sexy cab drivers,” one man said. “We’re just driving cabs to make money.”

“They’re sitting here all day and all night, and it’s not the best way to keep healthy,” a female cabbie named Vanessa said.

Creators Philip Kirkman and Shannon McLaughlin started the calendar last year to promote immigrant awareness. The couple said 90 percent of NYC cab drivers are immigrants.

The $14.99 calendar features three “all-stars” from last year’s hit and and debuts the first ever husband and wife driving duo. To get a copy, click here.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to University Settlement, a charity supporting low-income and immigrant families.
