A Great Connection
WiFi hits NYC parks
Okay, WAHMs, let’s do a group happy dance: a new five-year initiative between the City and AT&T is bringing WiFi access to lots of outdoor spaces around town. As of the last few months, you can connect (for free!) in Battery Park (Bosque and Ferry Landing), Central Park (Mineral Springs, Rumsey Playfield, Tavern on the Green, the Zoo), Holcombe Rucker Park, Marcus Garvey Park (Amphitheater), Thomas Jefferson Park, and Tompkins Square Park (Field House)—with future access planned for the High Line (woo-hoo!) and Foley Square. Brooklyn hot spots include Brooklyn Bridge Park, Prospect Park, Fort Greene Park, Herbert Von King Park, and McCarren Park. All you gotta do is select the “attwifi” network and you should be good to go. Spottiness is inevitable, but hey, it’s a start.
