LOCAL: DUMBO with Free WiFi

Dumbo is one of my favorite parts of the city. And it just got a little bit more favorite:

In the Dumbo neighborhood, the improvement district teamed with Two Trees Management Company, which owns about a dozen buildings in the neighborhood. Two Trees spent about $65,000 to have antennas and other equipment installed by the nonprofit organization NYCwireless, which has placed hot spots in several places around the city.

I think things like wifi networks are the technological equivalent of investments in parks and plazas.
