I was reading somewhere that during Halloween in a suburban area someone had set aside a phone that was to be used to call the person inside the house. The children didn’t call and when asked why they responded that they didn’t know how to dial.
I wonder how many of these scenes you will see in New York City in the coming years. This phone booth was found on West end avenue near 104th street on Manhattan’s Upper west side.
I had attended a event earlier this year through the French American Chamber of Commerce where the CTO for NYC had actually said that there was a plan to convert existing phones to wifi hot spots.
