What it does: Puts NYC’s iconic park in your phone (not literally)
Although, unfortunately, it won’t protect you from plainclothes police ticketing you for your box of Franzia, the app will guide you to more than 200 things to see in the most massive Manhattan public space there is, plus keep you up to date on the schedule of free shows this summer.
What it does: Lets you know what government services are available and allows you to make requests
You knew you could call 311, but you didn’t know it had an app -- New Yorkers are responsible citizens who are not afraid to report when there are injustices in their government services. Be heard, but be heard quietly through the silence of a mobile app.
