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
