BE A NEIGHBORHOOD CHAMPION


HELP DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN BECOME THE MOST CONNECTED NEIGHBORHOOD IN NEW YORK CITY

New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), Downtown Brooklyn Partnership (DBP)
and Fon have partnered to create a Free WiFi network in the Downtown Brooklyn area.
WiFi access points will be installed in various public locations. Your venue can be one of those locations!


About this project


Downtown Brooklyn is participating in New York City's Wireless Corridor Initiative to bring information and the power of the web to New Yorkers no matter where they live or work. New Yorkers will be able to connect to free WiFi powered by Fon, NYCEDC, and DBP in outdoor public places, merchants, and residential neighborhoods in and around the Downtown Brooklyn area (bordered by Schermerhorn St, Cadman Plaza West, Flatbush Ave and Tillary St).
