The New Museum and Droga5 have done a collaboration that recalls the nostalgia of the '90s in celebrating the nearly extinct pay phone. The project, titled “Recalling 1993,” turns every Manhattan pay phone—from Inwood to the Financial District—into geo-located time capsules from 1993. By dialing toll-free 1-855-FOR-1993 from any Manhattan pay phone, people can hear hundreds of never-been-told, local stories and memories from people like WNYC’s Brian Lehrer, the Village Voice’s Michael Musto, CUNY’s Suzanne Wasserman, Mario Batali, Chazz Palminteri, Fern Mallis, Doug E. Doug, Robin Byrd, James St. James, and more. If you find yourself in NYC soon, be sure to both visit NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star at the New Museum and give 1-855-FOR-1993 a call on any pay phone.
