The pay phone located at the commuter lot located on Todd Street has been removed to make way for the Route 72 extension.  Area resident Al Tunis is distressed, “I loved that telephone.  I recall making many a call from that phone.  This is sad.”

Due to the popularity of cell phones (156 million American’s own a cell phone) the need for public pay phones has diminished.  The phone company has not decided if a telephone will be placed at another location within the village.
