Relic of the Empire: Telephone Room

Within the memory of those yet living, these rooms had a purpose:

Chautauqua Lake Rest Stop - Phone Room

Chautauqua Lake Rest Stop – Phone Room

That’s at the fancy Chautauqua Lake rest area on eastbound I-86.

The majority of NY Interstate rest areas are, suffice it to say, far less ornate. Their walls now sport bare phone mounting plates and cut-off cables.

They don’t have any phone books these days, either…
