Downtown is Rich With Pay Phones

New, 7 comments

"Pay phones are everywhere here! Within a two block radius of our place [in Downtown LA], there are at least six of them, if not more. And here’s the thing — people are always using them! ..You’re probably saying to yourself, “Hey you Canadian-Midwest transplant, don’t they have pay phones where you are from?” The answer is yes they do still have pay phones back in Chicago and in Canada, however usually you have to seek them out in a building such as a mall or a public/government office; they are not randomly placed on a side street."
