Last New York City Public Payphone Removed, #York #City #Public #Payphone #Removed Welcome to O L A S M E D I A TV N E W S, This is what we have for you today:

It’s officially out with the old, and in with the new for NYC … cause the Big Apple’s last public payphone booth is unplugged.

Officials removed the historic gem Monday morning — located on 7th Ave. and 50th St. in Midtown Manhattan — and it was truly the last of its kind.

And, just like that, no one will be asking for a dime to make a phone call anymore. This marks the end of the New York City public payphone era.

There are still 4 full-length so-called “Superman booths” in Manhattan’s Upper West Side — and, as you might expect, they’re essentially museum pieces … where kids use ’em for Instagram photoshoots.

The city started taking thousands of payphones off the streets, across all five boroughs back in 2015 … and switched them out for public Wi-Fi hotspots.

The Wi-Fi hotspots allow folks to have free Wi-Fi, along with free phone calls within the U.S., access to social services directory, transit and weather alerts … and folks can also charge many of their devices.

The Wi-Fi hotspots will reportedly have 5G technology this summer … making it extremely efficient for New Yorkers.
