SPOTTED IN ASTORIA, NY : on the corner of 27th avenue and 8th street, a pay phone. It’s strange that something so revolutionary in the late 1880s can be so obsolete in 2012. I wonder if William Gray knew his invention would still be around 100plus years later. The very notion that this pay-phone is still in existence within Astoria Queens, is a testament that something as simple as a phone can still shape a community.
