Parks Dept Eyeing Coney Island, Manhattan Beach, Marine Park For Free WiFi

13

The Parks Department revealed they will be adding free wireless internet to parks in Coney Island, Manhattan Beach, and Marine Park after Bensonhurst Assemblyman William Colton expressed that the city has so far lavished Manhattan and northern Brooklyn communities with the service.

Colton said he believes it is unfair that wealthier neighborhoods in northern Brooklyn and Manhattan are dominating much of the city’s free internet service at parks and public spaces, and that his constituents deserve to be serviced as well as those residing in other areas.

The New York Post said that through a deal with AT&T, the city provides free wireless internet in 20 parks, most in neighborhoods filled with tourists.

Following the official’s protest, the Parks Department said the future sites for WiFi in Southern Brooklyn include the Coney Island beach and boardwalk, MCU Park, Manhattan Beach, Marine Park’s Nature Center, and possibly Owl’s Head Park in Bay Ridge. Colton is holding a press conference later today regarding the announcement.

Hope the Parks Department actually follows through with this promise. It’s about time that the city focuses on neglected areas such as Brooklyn and services residents just as well as those in wealthy neighborhoods.

And, we hope, you’ll all be using that WiFi to tune in to Sheepshead Bites!

    With the fraud protection now, even if the worst happens, it’s unlikely any losses will be permanent. Identity theft is another matter. A illicit bank transfer can be reversed, but using packet capture to get your identity and create some kind of account elsewhere is easier for any hacker.

  2. Free wifi is great as long as you’re just doing some fun browsing but think twice about doing your online baking on these public networks.
