Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: A Query

I happened upon a number of these fliers while walking down Manhattan Avenue this morning. I must have encountered at least eight between Huron and India Street alone. Clearly this person is annoyed. Believe you me yours truly feels his (or her pain); several years ago I had the misfortune of having a neighbor who was seemingly unaware that smoke detectors require batteries in order to function simply jettison it out the window in a fit of pique. As a result we had to listen to its dulcet mating call for 24 hours straight. This made me very unhappy.

The good news is methinks I have located the source of this sound! Last night as the Mister and I were walking down Manhattan Avenue we were rather mystified by a strange beeping sound originating from the pay phones located in front of Ott Restaurant. Feeling cheeky, I answered both pay phones with an enthusiastic:

Dobranoc!*

I was met with silence— and the beeping kept right on going! If the author of the above missives is reading this methinks this is where you’ll find your culprit. Good luck!
