End of an era

New York City has just hung up on a tradition dating back more than a century, taking away its last sidewalk pay phone. ABC News’ Will Ganss has the 411.

  1. Or what of some crazy was to happened and they the police I know in Cleveland Ohio we have pole with police call buttons on it but the police doesn’t pay no attention to them people are taking this light hearted but in all reality if they can provide free wifi creating something that allow someone to make a phone call for a small charge per minute would for help anyone who can’t afford a phone lost it or had been stolen need help plus if they thought about the city will still win some type of money back if they willing to give out free wifi

  2. This is been going on for years sadly yes we have phone now and day

    But again we have homeless people or many time people phone get stolen or broken yes putting free wifi and charging port can solve a few problems but again for those who simply don’t have a phone or again it’s recently broke or have been stolen they should at least create a more update version on the phone where they can pay 00.50 cent per minute or some because 9 time of ten a lot of the homeless people really don’t have enough and maybe that one phone call can make a payment difference

  3. How quickly New Yorkers forget…
    on 9/11 when the North Tower collapsed, it took major antennas with it, including those for cell phone use. People had to search for phone booths with land lines, and wait in very long lines, to notify family and friends! 🤔

    Also with cell phones, service is spotty during high winds/storms, and with large BUILDINGS blocking the signal!
    🤣

    I know because when I was in NYC
    August 2017, on top of the Empire State Building, I wasn't able to keep a signal, while talking on my phone, it kept cutting out! 😠

  4. Makes me sad because I think it useful for them to exists for people to use them let’s say your poor and that’s the only way to makes a phone call ☎️ we need them !

  5. When they went up to 50 cents I was mad lol. I used them often & bought phone minute & long distance cards. I think there may be a few at the train/greyhound bus station that still work I seen a few years ago… <3

  6. WTF is a payphone? (Just kidding)
    But it's about time…. those things should have been removed 10 years ago. Most useless invention ever. Put them in a museum! That's where they belong.

  7. I still think they are necessary what if your phone dies and there’s an emergency? As people are not comfortable with allowing someone borrow their phone on the spot.

  8. If the UK gets rid of the RED phone booth. What is Doctor WHO going to use. I am glad NYC is placing WIFI and recharging stations I live in a city without this convenience. You should see what people will do to try to recharge their dead phone because they do not have a cell portable recharging battery? Its SAD ?
