-A public google spreadsheet for the pay phone locations and numbers: https://docs.google.com/a/emilyville.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AhXimdB90zwNdFk1dmlzbjNSclVkUmliQU4wU2hyOHc&output=html

How to use this app
Text the name of the neighborhood to the chosen number to be connected with all the payphones in that neighborhood. It sometimes crashes - that's a lot of phone calls. If so, just ping me.
