Both Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senior Senator from New York Charles Schumer were in attendance to cut the "cables", making Chelsea the first neighborhood in New York City to have full access to wireless internet.
“Chelsea WiFi is a great new resource for our neighborhood. Hudson Guild will use the network as a teaching resource for kids, as a tool to connect older adults inside and outside the senior center and to stay in touch with working parents. This free Internet access will, literally, help Chelsea stay connected,” said Ken Jockers, Executive Director of the Hudson Guild.
