If you're constantly doing a lot of mobile work in Fort Greene, Michael Bloomberg has some good news for you.
The BAM Cultural District in Fort Greene will be at the center of a new, free public WiFi initiative, coming later this year, thanks to BAM's selection as part of the Wireless Corridor Challenge.
The neighborhood around BAM will be one of five areas of the city, including Flatiron and Downtown Brooklyn, set up with free public WiFi in an attempt to attract new businesses.
"If New York City is going remain competitive in the global economy, we must find ways to support the entrepreneurs who are driving technological advances and creating jobs,” said Bloomberg in a statement on his website. “We are making targeted investments to improve our city’s wireless infrastructure and expand Internet access."
The WiFi is set to debut in December, according to Bloomberg, and in Fort Greene in Clinton Hill, it will focus on Fulton Street between Rockwell Place and Classon Avenue.
"As the BAM Cultural District continues to evolve into the model of a 21st century cultural center, we are excited to provide this Wi-Fi access to our neighborhood and those who visit our community each day,” BAM President Karen Brooks Hopkins said in a statement.
