The New York Post is reporting that the New York City is planning to install 32-inch, internet-connected touchscreen displays in some 250 phone booths. The plan will start rolling starting from next month and will roll out for all 12,800 phone booths in the city. These screens will display local neighbourhood info like nearby restaurants, stores, attractions, and safety alerts, all in a number of languages. Interestingly, the booths will not only help the public but also the city as once this plan is fully implemented, New York City will take a 36 percent cut of all ad revenues.
