Telephone is a sculpture made from a re-purposed phone booth filled with blown glass, aluminum, silver and LEDS. Anyone familiar with local artist Randy Polumbo from Previous Posts here on The Gig will recognize his work immediately.

Photographed at the Portal Art Fair, held at Federal Hall National Memorial in NYC, May 2016.
Update: Randy informs me that this piece is on exhibit at The Hollows, located at 151 Bedford Ave. (between N8 and N9) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for most of the Summer, too!
Winter Storm Jonas dumped Two Feet of white, fluffy snow on NYC on Saturday, January 23rd, and the aftermath is fairly Instagram worthy. This public phone booth, which appears to be “occupied,” stands near the corner of West 53rd Street and 6th Avenue.
On This Date, February 1st in 1980: Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (generally known simply as OMD) released the awkward dance single, “Red Frame/White Light” from the group’s self-titled debut album. The song’s title refers to old school UK based telephone booths.
