WiFi for the Masses

Free wireless internet is almost ubiquitous now, but Bryant Park made headlines in 2002 when we partnered with NYCwireless and became the first park in New York City to provide the service. Since then, we’ve made regular, incremental improvements to the network. We’re now proud to announce our latest change, a complete system overhaul with experts from Sky-Packets and hardware from Meraki.

With access points in each corner of the park, plus a few more for good measure, we’ve got the place covered. The next time you’re in the park, give it a shot. Make sure you’re connected to our official network with the SSID (network name) BryantPark.org. Then just open your browser, accept our Terms and Conditions, and browse to your heart’s content. If you’re in the park and having difficulties using the wireless, the helpful folks at Sky-Packets are available via phone and email:

For more information about the deployment, read the press release from Meraki. As usual, we’d love to hear feedback about your experiences in the park.

  1. How wonderful! It is always nice to go out of the house and find a refreshing place to access the internet. Hopefully, the parks in our area does the same. Event Wifi UK
