A Bountiful Bouquet Of Colorful Blooms Emerges From This NYC Phone Booth

Botanical designer Lewis Miller returns to the NYC streets to enliven an otherwise ordinary corner with a bountiful bouquet of flowers.

A few years ago, Miller turned empty garbage cans into voluminous vases, each which overflowed with colorful blooms and lush greenery. His most recent street side installation emerges from a telephone booth at 825 West End avenue in Manhattan’s Upper West side, spilling out from within the booth’s sliding doors.

Miller’s latest ‘Flower Flash’ is a project that he and his team emphasize is a ‘constant pursuit of beauty’.

“We had never done a phone booth before,” Miller told Gothamist. “We were debating between a phone booth and a fire escape but ultimately this iconic phone booth on 100th Street and West End Avenue won out! During the execution of this particular flash so many neighborhood folk came out to tell us the history of this booth. It’s a working telephone and there is even a children’s book written about it called The Lonely Phone Booth.”
