Northern NY City Deploys Hi Tech Tourism Technology

The city of Plattsburgh is deploying high technology information kiosks to enhance tourism opportunities in the city

City officials announced Wednesday that a network of walk-up touchscreen kiosks will be installed in the city.  

The PlattInfo screens will provide information in English and French on restaurants, shopping, venues, events and points of interest in the city.  

Mayor Don Kasprzak says Plattsburgh is one of the first cities to use such technology and it will be made available on the internet and mobile devices.  

Funding for the system is through a grant from the NYS Division of Home and Community Renewal.
