NEW YORK – To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) and LinkNYC announced that couples across the city have the chance to see photos of their loved ones on the Wi-Fi kiosks’ 55-inch digital displays -- and can set up a marriage proposal via Link!
New Yorkers can submit photos of their Valentines by tagging #LinkLoveNYC on Instagram for a chance to be featured on Links across the five boroughs on Valentine's Day, Wednesday, February 14th.

“We are thrilled to add this fun feature to Link kiosks across the five boroughs this Valentine’s Day,” said Anne Roest, Commissioner of the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications. “Once again, this platform has proven to be a powerful engagement tool for all New Yorkers.”
“With Links throughout all five boroughs, a LinkNYC Valentine is the best way to declare your love to all of New York City!” said Jen Hensley, President of Link. “LinkNYC's digital displays feature fun facts about New York City, historic photos, important PSAs, and advertising that keeps our services free for all. This Valentine's Day, you can use it to tell someone you love them -- and even propose.”
LinkNYC, is the first-of-its-kind communications network replacing the city’s payphones to build the world’s fastest and largest free public Wi-Fi network. Since Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the public launch of LinkNYC in early 2016, more than 1,280 Links have been activated across all five boroughs, with thousands more set to be deployed over the next few years.
More than 3.2 million people – more than the populations of the cities of Chicago, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Dallas, or San Diego – have used the free gigabit Wi-Fi service, with tens of thousands of users joining the network each week. For more information and to find a Link near you, visit link.nyc.
