I love you to gigabits: Pop the question, see your names on a LinkNYC kiosk
There's something new for romantics at LinkNYC kiosks, often a symbol of free love in the city.
As this photo via EVG reader Daniel shows, the kiosks have a notice asking passersby if they are planning to pop the question. (Presumably in the form of a marriage proposal.)
If you do ask your partner for his/her hand in marriage between now and early February, your proposal will appear on LinkNYC kiosks. (So keep it clean!) Reach out to email@example.com for more info.
On the LinkNYC topic, the city reported last week that more than 1.04 million users have logged into the kiosks citywide.
The kiosks, which provide free domestic calls, Wi-Fi service, USB charging ports, among other services — "have seen an average of 40,000 new sign-ups and 4 million Wi-Fi sessions per week, according to the city," as DNAinfo reported.
In the past year, more than 53o kiosks have been installed. The city plans to install 7,500 kiosks in total. The first one arrived late in December 2015 outside the Starbucks on Third Avenue and East 15th Street.
