Hartford Pay Phone Contest: Pay Phone #20
Pay phone #20 is located on Capen St just feet from where a Smoker's Depot was held and an employee was shot up earlier this week. The store behind #20 could not possibly be more interesting. While billed as a variety store, the promise of hot dogs, sausages, soda billiards and video games make it sounds more like a teenage arcade heaven. It is puzzling though why the front has a trio of chairs that look like they may have been purchased the same time Aerosmith was first becoming popular. It took no more then 3 minutes of being in the neighborhood before a car rolled by and serenaded me with calls of "Yo Yo Yo!" Feel free to imagine for yourself what that might have been about.
