Internet cafe serving Bronx residents saved from closing its doors
An Internet cafe in the Bronx that was in jeopardy of closing its doors has been saved thanks to the help of two local congressmen.
Cyber Casa is a community center that provides Bronx residents with access to free Internet service and computer training. A lack of funding had threatened the center, which has been part of the Bronx for three years. But on Tuesday, congressmen Joseph Crowley (D-Bronx) and Jose Serrano (D-Bronx) presented the center with a $500,000 check to continue operating.
Residents were thrilled to hear the news saying they rely on Cyber Casa for Internet access. The center is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
