I'm no expert, but those towers appear to be dangerously close to the apartment windows (and to the fire escape in one case). Does anyone in NYC government ever even consider that?

The towers do look like giant tampons, BTW.


I have a Link5G tower outside of my window and I love it! It's perfect for pest control as it attracts and kills Lantern Moths, Murder Hornets, and the feral Honey Badgers that live in the outdoor dining shed.

These 5G towers are fking evil and are going to give us all cancer. Any elected officials with the will and balls to stand up to this garbage being shoved down our throats?
