A Bell Atlantic-branded pay phone survives at Pete’s Tavern, appropriate given that this bar, dating to 1864, is among NYC’s most historic. Bell Atlantic was founded in 1984, merged with NYNEX in New York in 1997, and operated under the Bell brand in NYC for three short years until becoming Verizon in 2000. Oh, and guess what? The phone doesn’t work. #phone #payphone #payphoneography
