There Goes My View: Cell Phone Tower Cometh in the Burg

New, 24 comments

It's been a while since we had a Williamsburg photo worth of the "There Goes My View" name, but today we do in the form of a view-killing cell phone tower. A tipster writes about:

a "tower going up on my roof! management said nothing. they showed up thursday and started the base - friday did some repairs to the roof - waiting for the 'antenna.' is shit and city not helping much either. will go lawyer route if worth it - is it even worth fighting?...oh yeah and my view will be gone.The building is on Grand St. between Graham and Humboldt. On the bright side, it's only a cell phone tower as opposed to an entire building, which is what slays most views in the Burg and beyond.
