Did you ever look through your pockets for a dime to make a call at a public phone booth?

In New York City, that era is over as the city’s last public pay phone booth has been disconnected.

It was the last of more than 8,000 public telephones across the city that have been removed one by one over the past several years, in what the city says is part of its plan to expand Wi-Fi kiosks around the city.

The pay phone will find its new home at a Museum of the City of New York exhibit, “Analog City.”
