Whatever happened to those British call boxes outside The Telephone Bar on Second Avenue?
Hard to believe that The Telephone Bar & Grill on Second Avenue near East Ninth Street closed a little more than four years ago. The 22-year-old bar was later replaced by (glug! glug!) The 13th Step.
The front of bar was adorned with those old-timey phone booths (or, rather, British call boxes!).
In case you were a fan of the bar, this is for you.
An EVG Facebook friend came across a post yesterday on Messy Nessy Chic featuring a Harlem-based company called The Demolition Depot, which "makes it their business to go in and salvage the irreplaceable pieces of a building’s architectural heritage."
And at the Demolition Depot, you will find these booths for sale...
Now if we could only find some of those old Mars Bar stools...
