Google, in an expansion of its role as an Internet Service Provider, introduced Tuesday New York City's biggest contiguous free public Wi-Fi network in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
Google's choice of location for the giant network is no surprise: Chelsea is home to Google's New York headquarters, meaning employees out at lunch breaks or area meetings will be able to remain productive even while out of the office. The network runs between Gansevoort St. and 19 St. from 8th Ave to the West Side Highway and in area public spaces, including the Chelsea Triangle, 14th Street Park and Gansevoort Plaza.
