THE SUNSET PARK BID BRINGS FREE WIFI TO 5TH AVENUE!
The Sunset Park BID provides many services to 5th Avenue to create a better shopping experience. However, now aside from the usual supplemental sanitation, graffiti removal and holiday decorations, the SPBID has been installing equipment which will create a free WiFi mesh along 5th Avenue and throughout Sunset Park’s park. This will allow us to offer shoppers, businesses and residents free Internet service. We also will be creating a special Sunset Park app through which businesses can offer specials to their customers, saving the need for paper coupons.
This free service is being paid for by the business and property owners of Sunset Park’s 5th Avenue, through the added tax that they have agreed to pay since 1995.
The SPBID would like to thank the Office of Mayor de Blasio, the Department of Information, Technology and Telecommunications, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Public Design Commission for working with us to get the proper approvals for installation of equipment along 5th Avenue and within the 24-acre Sunset Park.
We also would like to thank Sky-Packets for their vision and patience in putting together this project.
And finally we would like to thank those businesses and property owners who have allowed us place equipment on their buildings and have agreed to also pay for the electric. They include:

|♦Delvis Valdes, Esq 4505 5th Ave||♦Body Compass 4624 5th Ave|
