A few weeks ago, I wrote both here
and in the Post
about how three historic call boxes along First Street (at L, N, and O) went missing in early October. Voice of the Hill
has followed up with DDOT, and apparently two of the three were removed and put into storage for protection until the streetscape improvements along First Street are completed early next year. The whereabouts of the third box are unknown. The piece also gives more background on Cultural Tourism DC's efforts to restore the call boxes throughout the city, and how the Earth Conservations Corps is planning to repaint about 40 boxes in Southwest and Southeast.
