With the removal of most payphones from the NYC subway system, this project has been slow to update. So this site will remain as an archive, and will not be updated any further. In the future this project may be revived, but as of May 12, 2013 this project shall remain as an archive only.
The content on this site is original. You may use any of the information on this site for any non-commercial purposes as you wish. If adding any of the photos or payphone numbers to any directories, please credit the information to NYPHONEJACKS.

Need to edit some of the responses to called numbers

I called most of these phones with Google Voice. Unfortunately Google Voice does NOT pass audio before supervision, so any calls where I indicated "might accept incoming calls - rings" may be deceptive, I just randomly dialed one of the phones listed as such, and I got the NIS recording, so I will have to redial all of those numbers to determine if any or all of them are forwarding to the NIS recording.

All done. Just one phone gave me "we can not complete your call at this time" with several attempts, but that recording was coming from my carrier, and not an error from the phone that I was calling, so I will have to try that one once again with a different line when I get a chance, other than that, all the older posts should be up to date as of today. Strange to see so many payphone's saying that they are out of service when you try to call them.

Here is a bonus one that was sitting in my phone, it is not the clearest, because the glare thru the windshield, and I do not have the number or location. But it shows someone actually using a payphone on a corner, somewhere in 718.

I have tried to use the email publishing feature of blogger to add content to this site, but most of the emails do not end up with the content being posted on the site, so unfortunately i can not add content to this blog in real time... but will continue to make updates whenever I get new content. Submissions are also welcome by emailing trainphones@nyphonejacks.com

[EDIT] I messed up on some of the captions (in this post only, other posts are OK) and will fix them when I have a chance. In the mean time, if you want to know a number, or location check the image name. A full list of discovered numbers (including the ones that I messed up the captions) is in a link on the right side bar.
