Those look horrible and massively oversized. I don't understand the point of it because it's not as if there's a lack of telephone poles to put 5G equipment on. The LinkNYC kiosks that currently exist fit in well with the streetscape. These stick out like a sore thumb no matter where you put them.
This just seems like the city looking for a way to further monetize LinkNYC so that they not only get money from advertising but also from site leasing when carriers hop onto them.
