10 NYC Commercial Districts to Get Wired

Today, NYC's Mayor Bloomberg announced that free Wi-Fi is coming to 10 commercial corridors throughout New York City.

The corridors (and the organizations who will implement and oversee the Wi-Fi programs) were selected through the Wireless Corridor Challenge, led by the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The selected organizations are the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, Alliance for Downtown New York, Brooklyn Academy of Music, GOWEX, and Flatiron 23rd Street Partnership.

Starting in December of 2013, here are the district's where you'll be able to access the free Wi-Fi:
Brooklyn: the Fulton Street corridor, BAM Cultural District, Brownsville, and Downtown Brooklyn
Manhattan: Flatiron District, Water Street Corridor, East River waterfront in Lower Manhattan, the 125th Street corridor in Harlem and on Roosevelt Island
Queens: Long Island City
Staten Island: St. George commercial district
The Bronx: Fordham Road

Today also marks the launch of WiredNYC, a rating system for the broadband connectivity of office buildings. Click here for the press release.
