Yesterday afternoon, the city unveiled the first LinkNYC pornhub kiosk for Delancey Street. It’s situated just east of the Bowery, where these things are multiplying faster than gizmo in a swimming pool.

The 9-foot-6-inch unit is not yet active, though.

LinkNYC stations have been criticized pretty much from the get-go. In league with the soulless Cemusa newsstands. But more so due to the alleged attraction of squatters, drug dealers, homeless, etc.

The LinkNYC program was officially announced last year as public-private partnership between CityBridge and NYC. Each kiosk comes equipped with “the fastest public” free Wi-Fi signal, free domestic phone capability, two USB charging ports, and annoying digital displays. Customers can also use the touchscreen to look up directions and find out about other city services; web browsing was disabled due to the extended use (i.e. porn).

The city plans to install 4,550 hot-spots by July 2019. According to the agreement with CityBridge, that number will increase to 7,500 across the Five Boroughs by 2023. The goal is to feed us more advertising fully replace the crop of holdout phone-booths that still dot the area.
