Hartford Pay Phone Contest: Pay Phone #6

Here we have Pay Phone #6 in the Sad City Pay Phone Search. This pay phone is found on Main Street not far from Sad City favorite, The Old North Cemetery. We at Sad City are long familiar with the "drug buy hi" in which a street dealer waves at you as you drive by. It appears at the area around #6 has adapted the "drug buy hi" into the "coke wave" as we can see the phrase oh so subtlety painted to the right of #6. Also note the mysterious box next to the phone (too nervous to inspect) and the high price of Newport cigarettes (sheesh, using the "coke wave" might be cheaper) #6 is working.
