Mapping New York City
LinkNYC is the first-of-its-kind communications network that replaced New York City's payphones with the world’s fastest and largest free public Wi-Fi network. Since its launch in 2016, more than 1,770 Links are active across all five boroughs.

“Mapping New York City” — a collaborative project lead by scholar Becky Cooper — featured select maps illustrated by people across the city. Participants were provided with the outline of their NYC borough and asked to “map their city” revealing a series of fun and inspiring narratives about their home borough. Selected pieces were then featured on LinkNYC around New York City.
