NY Library elegant hotspot

The New York Public Library on Monday opened its converted Edna Barnes Salomon Room into a reading room for online users, adding Wi-Fi accessible Internet access. Up until now, the Beaux-Arts room has been used for special occasions only, but can now seat 128 people at specially made black walnut tables and brown leather chairs that match the maple wood floor.

The room is in a building that houses the library's research collection and was built in 1911, putting a Wi-Fi hotspot at one of the oldest structures accessible to the public. Users can access the Internet using their own notebooks, or borrow one from the library for free starting on July 28th. [via LATimes]
