Photo by myself around 68th Street and Lexington Avenue, on the Upper East Side.
I heard about this on the radio but seeing it in person made it real. Cell phone 'valets' on wheels.
Kids aren't allowed to have cellphones or other electronic devices in school, so they can 'park' their devices in a truck outside the school. This way, they can waste no time device-less.
Costs for such services vary from fifty cents to a dollar a day. Seriously.
For more about phone valets, read about it in USA Today here.
