Call the Bomb Squad

Someone actually called 911 to report a suspicious looking contraption inside an Astoria phone booth. This was a couple of years ago. I can see where this might look odd but in fact the devices shown are simply the power supply for the lights that would illuminate the advertising panel that is supposed to be present. Most people wouldn’t guess this but payphone enclosures like this are solar-powered. These devices are drawing energy from the solar panels on the roof of the phone booth.
