Free wifi has been creeping its way across public parks ever since the city announced the initiative this summer: McCarren Park became the first to go online in September. Today, AT&T flipped the service on in two more: Pier 1 at Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Picnic House at Prospect Park (along with Marcus Garvey Park in Manhattan in Harlem, where you can go for some non-BK marathon watching). Fort Greene and Herbert Von King parks are slated to get wifi next. How well does it work? Brokelyn’s Meredith Olson took her laptop to McCarren to put it through the paces. See her findings here!
Take cover here and wait until the coast is clear, AKA the sales have ended.
Kick out the glams, get trashed, be sketchy, stay wicked, get a short stack with your tall boy, go back to the basics & more ways to have a spiffy weekend
We honor today's exciting news that cars will be exiled from the park with a roundup of other good local news from this year.
