Can you hear me now? (No, there’s a train going by)
See that sign? See those little black domes on the bottom?
Cell phone antennas, just installed Tuesday night at Columbus Circle.

    Really good question. I actually quite enjoy the lack of cell phone conversations around me when on a subway.

    The subway station one block from me now has cell phone service? That’s cool and all but…why? People can’t go for more...
