RWA kicked off Rockaways First Free Wifi network - RockspotNYC.org in 2016 in order to support a strong local economy by giving local residents, businesses, and visitors online access to important neighborhood news, social media, blogs, business coupons, job opportunities, and a community event calendar for destinations-of-interest in the Rockaways.

RockspotNYC.org is hosted by the Rockspot Digital Stewards, high school interns who develop the content, social media and marketing for the Rockspot community network to support local businesses and create opportunities for economic growth in the Rockaways. The network has already helped to boost foot traffic and business, promote safety, and connect our community on a daily basis to local businesses as well as in times of emergency.

Businesses interested in being included on the Rockspotnyc.org network and website should contact External Affairs Manager Judah Asimov at: info@rwalliance.org

RockSpot Stewards Program  IS SPONSORED BY THE NY STATE GOVERNORS OFFICE OF STORM RECOVERY (GOSR) AND THE NY STATE RISING PROGRAM.
