The public pay phone has nearly become extinct. It is the equivalent to dial-up internet or the pony express. But at the Stewarts Shop in Clinton there is still a working pay phone for anyone to use. What's cool is it's still only a quarter for local calls!

It is not only a pay phone that the public can use, but this is the phone the convenient store uses as their business line. When you call the Stewarts at 315-853-1435 that pay phone will ring. I can recall so many locations in our community where you could find a pay phone including the Sangertown Square Mall. There were some inside the mall and even outside one or two of the entrances, but even in New York City these archaic devices are being swapped out for Wifi hot spots. If you ever get the chance stop by this newly renovated Stewarts location and witness history.
