Pay Phone Graveyard in Manhattan

Pay phone graveyard

New York City photographer Dave Bledsoe recently discovered a spooky pay phone graveyard under an elevated highway on the west side of Manhattan.

Underneath the elevated West Side Highway at 135th and 12th Avenue I found this telephone graveyard. At least a one hundred old, battered pay phones were locked behind a fence near the Park’s Department building. I almost took these on my iPhone, but my irony levels are dangerously low these days.
