Last NYC public payphones removed

The final New York City public pay telephone bank was removed on Monday morning. The kiosk, which housed two phones, was on 7th Avenue and 50th Street in Midtown Manhattan. The city began removing payphones in 2015 and replacing them with public Wi-Fi hotspots. The removal marks the end of the payphone era in the city except for some private payphones on public property and four permanent full-length so-called Superman booths.
