Homeless New Yorkers on Lower East Side get broadband Internet access
Adam Balkin of NY1 reports on a new computer center on Manhattan's LES that will bring computers and Internet access to lower-income and homeless New Yorkers. According to the head of the new computer center, there will be 13 Internet-ready computers and a number of printers that will be available free of charge to any member of the local community. A big hat tip to Computer Associates for coming up with a $30,000 grant for Nazareth Housing to get the center up-and-running.
NOTE: The article says that the computer center is on the Lower East Side, but a little fact-checking only turned up an address in the East Village. Anyone know for sure which is correct?
