The New Museum 'recalls 1993' and pays tribute to a pivotal year in New York City's history through pay phones in Manhatten via Droga5

recall1993.jpgToday, the New Museum and Droga5 are launching Recalling 1993 a project commemorating one of the most pivotal years in New York City's history by breathing new life into an all-but-forgotten icon of the 90s: the pay phone.
"Recalling 1993" turns every Manhattan pay phone--from Inwood to the Financial District--into geo-located time capsules from 1993 featuring hundreds of never-been-told stories and memories from WNYC's Brian Lehrer, the Village Voice's Michael Musto, CUNY's Suzanne Wasserman, Mario Batali, Chazz Palminteri, Fern Mallis, Doug E. Doug, Robin Byrd, James St. James and many more.

By dialing toll-free 1-855-FOR-1993 from any Manhattan pay phone, people will hear hyper-local, personal accounts--from memories of the World Trade Center bombing in the Financial District to the club culture at Limelight in Chelsea to the opening of Angels in America in Midtown.
All told, there's more than 4.5 hours of content.
