I stand around day and night,
A crimson tourist's delight.
People used to queue up just to chat with me,
But now I'm lonely and forgotten
I'm just a money loving oversized novelty.

What am I?

Are you a

Telephone box

enter image description here

I stand around day and night,

It can't move at any time (except maybe Doctor Who's)

A crimson tourist's delight.

It is bright red and are quite rare

People used to queue up just to chat with me,

People queued to speak on the phone as it was the only phone available at the time

But now I'm lonely and forgotten,

But mobiles where invented so the telephone box was no longer needed

I'm just a money loving oversized novelty

Reference to how large it is and how you had to insert coins to make a call
