Like that view up there? Sure you do. We bear good news about it.

Soon enough, if the Parks Department gets the bids it expects, you should be able to sit on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and enjoy the awesomeness of that view of the Gotham skyline while you read Gothamist on your laptop. Why? Because on top of the free WiFi that should be appearing in Central and Prospect Parks this spring the Parks Department has announced its intention to WiFi Fort Greene Park, Columbus Park near Cadman Plaza, Carroll Park, Cobble Hill Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

It's no citywide wireless, but it is a start...
