Coming to New York City?
See if you can get a library card.
Streaming just became free, courtesy of the public library. Anyone who has a New York Public Library or Brooklyn Public Library card can now watch more than 30,000 feature films, documentaries, foreign-language films and training videos.
Last Friday, the two libraries partnered with the streaming service Kanopy to give cardholders access to the company’s collections. This includes the entirety of the Criterion Collection, which features hundreds of classic and contemporary films.
Allow me to point out, in case you're unaware: The In-Laws is in the Criterion Collection. It is by far the funniest movie ever made. Ever. (And of course the Criterion Collection has those artsy fartsy French movies which Bravo once thought it could base its model on, like Rules of the Game, and so on.)
Mr. Mayor, I think you should use this as an NYC selling point.
