CB6 helped to remove two abandoned telephone booths on 35th Street!


Community Board 6 received a report of two abandoned telephone booths at 35th Street and 3rd Avenue (northeast corner). These booths had no phones in them and were a neighborhood eyesore. Worse yet, they were needlessly obstructing a portion of busy sidewalk that would be narrow even without the booths.

CB6 worked with the NYC Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DOITT) on the removal of these booths. After working with DOITT the booths were removed, and the sidewalk on this portion of 35th Street is safer and has more room for social distancing!

If you know of abandoned phone booths in Community District 6 or need help with another service request issue, please report it using the Community Board 6 Get Help form at cbsix.org/get-help, email help@cbsix.org or call 212-319-3750. [Source: CB6 February 2021 newsletter, February 1, 2021]
