Pick Up A Pay Phone And You’ll Hear My Voice


You remember pay phones. They were popular around the same time as fax machines and messenger pigeons.

And there are some left. Even better, there are some that work.

So a fascinating new artistic project has hooked up 5000 NYC pay phones so that if you pick up the receiver and call 1-855-FOR-1993 (toll-free), you’ll hear various notables like myself reminiscing about the wonders and horrors of our city back in ’93.

Topics covered include the club culture, the changing neighborhoods, the sex industry, the galleries, and the politics.

I’m going to try it today to see what I have to say.
