Fort Greene Park now jacked in to free wifi

Why do this when you could be checking Facebook? Photo via Flickr's Pantone261.

This would normally be an item we’d tell you to hold on til the glory days of summer, but with our freakishly beautiful (and surely a harbinger of doom) spring-like winter, you can probably use it this weekend! Today, Fort Greene Park became the latest Brooklyn public spot to get free wifi. That brings the total jacked-in parks in the borough to five including Herbert Von King Park, McCarren, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Prospect Park (by the Picnic House). See the full list of wifi-enabled parks, which now includes Central Park Zoo — so you can instagram your orangutans? — across the whole city below. Wondering how good the signal is? Check out this test drive in McCarren Park from Meredith Olson.

The wifi is a joing effort from the city and AT&T and so far covers:

·       Herbert Von King Park

·       McCarren Park Field House

·       Pier 1 and Pier 6 at Brooklyn Bridge Park

·       Prospect Park Picnic House

·       Astoria Park

·       Tompkins Square Park

·       Marcus Garvey Park

·       Clove Lakes Park

·       Battery Bosque and Ferry Landing at Battery Park

·       Thomas Jefferson Park

·       Joyce Kilmer Park

·       Mineral Springs, Tavern on the Green, Rumsey Playfield in Central Park

·       Devoe Park
