Best NYC park location with free & reliable wifi?

Looking to take my laptop and work inside a park somewhere in Manhattan. Ideally, should be inside the park, but anything right next to it works too. Since those are the closest to me, any locations in Thompson or Union Square parks will be the best. Thanks!

Make Droid Play Nice with My Network

Got my Motorola Droid. Love my Droid. However, Verizon's impressive map doesn't seem to include the cell phone black hole which is my neighborhood. I was hoping to hook my Droid to our home wireless network to avoid the slow connection problem, and dutifully inputted our WEP key, but all efforts to get the Droid on home network have been a bust. I did check the Droid user forums and download a couple of apps -- still no luck. What else can I do besides return my Droid? (Which ain't gonna happen.)

Are Cell Towers/Wifi Harmless?

So cell towers are being installed next to a school that's near mine. Parents there are concerned about this, and also about the presence of wifi networks in schools. They cite research promulgated by a Magda Havas. I know hers is a minority viewpoint- but is it fairly described as 'crackpot'? Do parents have legitimate concerns over these issues?
