If you are in Manhattan anytime from now until May 26, pick up a pay phone for a bit of history. Advertising agency Droga5 and the New Museum teamed up for "Recalling 1993," a project that revives the use of NYC's payphones to tell stories of 1993. Here is how it works:
- Find a pay phone in any neighborhood in Manhattan.
- Pick it up and dial 1.855.FOR.1993.
- Listen and you will hear a short recollection about the neighborhood you are in from someone who lived or worked there during 1993.
And if you love this project, pick up as many pay phones as you can. There are over 50 interviews you can listen to.
