There was a time in which payphones were everywhere. It was an indispensable technology that we all relied on. These days, it is a thing of the past.
In New York City, the last public payphone was removed from its Times Square location earlier this week. Its new home will be a museum.
I have mixed feelings about this. To be truthful, it was inevitable. There is no need to use a payphone when we are all walking around with cell phones. But it also represents the end of an era, both in the area of technology and how our world has changed dramatically in the last few decades.
RIP to the public payphone. Thanks for the memories.

Yeah, it is very sad and yet, it’s kind of a relief that there will be one less thing to be vandalized. Gawd, I’m sooo overdue for a trip to NYC. Thanks for following me. I swear I never saw the notification. Your blog looks interesting!
