Community Wi-Fi is now available in the East Village. NYC Mesh allows you to split your Internet bill with your neighbor. It gives you backup service when there is no internet, and it connects you with the NYC Mesh network of local websites.
NYC Mesh is owned by the community. There is no monthly fee. You can join by buying an indoor router for $33, or $95 for the powerful directional outdoor router. We have members in the East Village that can help you set it up. If you are not happy, return the router and get your money back.
We currently have public access points at d.b.a. bar, East Third Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue, Marble Cemetery, Clinton Street and Union Square North Plaza.

If you want to learn more about this, then there's a meeting tonight at d.b.a., 41 First Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street.
