Hundreds of 9-1/2-foot-tall LinkNYC kiosks — which provide phone, Wi-Fi service and a charging station — have been installed across the city, with more coming every day. While they are getting increased usage, the kiosks, which come equipped with built-in cameras and targeted video advertising, are not popular with everyone.

Case in point: Cobble Hill resident Judith Barnes came back from a vacation last week only to find this LinkNYC kiosk installed directly in front of her apartment window.

Check back Monday to read what Barnes learned about the kiosk, and why she wants it to go away.
