As you may have realized, New York City payphones are things of the past. They aren’t being used anymore and the city is even getting rid of them. This marks a revolutionary time in history as this piece of genius is being replaced by other mediums. I’m sorry for your loss and I share the same pain. There was no better way to celebrate all the payphone has done for us and to see it off for a final time than to have a payphone funeral. The funeral took place in Manhattan, New York City by the West 4th subway station, where guests came together and listened to a eulogy.
