LINK NYC Kiosks Seen in Astoria

Some of our sharp-eyed neighbors have spotted new LINK NYC kiosks in our neighborhood. According to amNY, 150 new kiosks have recently installed, mainly in Queens and Brooklyn, and they will be activated soon. The LINK NYC stations offer free phone service, WiFi, and cellphone charging ports and have been replacing traditional payphones since their launch in 2016. A good option if your phone runs out of battery or data!
