New York City to turn phone booths into Wi-Fi hot spots | Al Jazeera America

Re-inventing part what used to be a standard part of any urban setting: the telephone booth. This sounds like an interesting program. I think that most of Lake Worth's pay telephones have been removed long ago. There are still some odd ones along Dixie Hwy, usually near convenience stores. But there is a need for wi-fi and charging stations in urban locations - maybe we can find an alternative. Click title for link to article.

These telephone booths caught my eye from the lower right corner of a picture of the Municipal Auditorium (current City Hall), probably from the early to mid 60s.
They were at the SW corner of Dixie Hwy. and Lucerne.
