NEW YORK (AP) - Officials say sensors that monitor energy usage, overcrowding, and whether a handicap-accessible entrance is blocked are being installed at the historic Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The Daily News reports (https://nydn.us/1OawovS ) the monitoring system is part of a new pilot program involving the office of Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, the computer company Dell, and tech startup flowthings.io.

Officials say the information will be used for tech research in other cities.

Adams says government has to keep up with technological advances.

Brooklyn Borough Hall is a 168-year old Greek Revival-style building.
