Phone Booth Shelter

Not Dead: Phone Booth Shelters serve a purpose in Hoboken

Been watching the various “phone booths” in Hoboken for quite a while. I hadn’t seen anyone in one in a very long time. They were essentially “ghost towns” in my opinion.

However, during one “inclement” day recently, I spotted a very RARE instance. Someone actually USING a phone booth.

Of course, it had nothing to do with the contraption inside – but rather the COVER it provided the girl as she used her MOBILE device to communicate.

So – at what point to these antiquated devices go away and free sidewalk space up for homeless guys? C’mon already!
