After attending one of the events during the 61st Session of the United Nations' Commission on the Status of Women, I saw the relic in the corner. I haven't seen a decent looking payphone (one that I would actually use) in over 10 years. There are still a few on some corners in and around New York City but I certainly cannot attest to the safe operation or cleanliness of the phone.
I just had to capture this moment for my future grandchildren's sake. Hey! Its history.
