Clark Kent's Shit Out Of Luck

Forgotten New York, a coolio web site about the constantly evolving (devolving?) face of the city, has a section about the vanishing presence of phone booths (like this one at West End Avenue & West 65th Street)—and pay phones, in general... Thought about that yesterday as I passed the entrance to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade at Montague and Pierrepont streets, where this 1960s' relic bubble "booth" still stands... and even works! Coincidentally, the bike also seems period-appropriate.
