Have you seen a pay phone lately? Do you know what a pay phone is?

When it comes to pay phones, New York State has the largest number of pay phones still in operation in the USA.

According to Metro Source News:

The FCC says as of 2016, there were fewer than 100-thousand pay phones in the country.  Of that number, more than 20-thousand of them were located in New York.

Here at The Rand Building in Buffalo, there are still 2 booths left that weer used for pay phone users to have a private conversation. These days, there seems to be no concern to have a private chat on a phone. On the bus, in an airport or just waiting in line at the grocery store, people have no shame when talking loudly on a phone!
