5,000 NYC pay phones will take you back to 1993
NEW YORK (AP) — Want to journey to a grittier time in New York City's not-too-distant past?
A time when the murder rate was sky high? When Times Square was a crossroads of crime and porn? When Starbucks had yet to arrive and hardly anyone owned a cellphone?
A project designed to promote an art exhibit has turned 5,000 Manhattan pay phones into time machines that take callers back to 1993.
Pick up a receiver, punch 1-855-FOR-1993 and you will hear a notable resident recounting what life was like 20 years ago.
The exhibit at the New Museum titled "NYC 1993" and the accompanying phone campaign run through May 26.
