WE NEED A BIGGER ANTENNA (via Jim Yates):


Empire State Building car zap mystery
(Richard Weir, 1/05/10, NY DAILY NEWS)

In the shadow of the Empire State Building lies an “automotive Bermuda Triangle” - a five-block radius where vehicles mysteriously die.

No one is sure what’s causing it, but all roads appear to lead to the looming giant in our midst - specifically, its Art Deco mast and 203-foot-long, antenna-laden spire.

“We get about 10 to 15 cars stuck near there every day,” said Isaac Leviev, manager of Citywide Towing, the AAA’s exclusive roadside assistance provider from 42nd St. to the Battery. “You pull the car four or five blocks to the west or east and the car starts right up.”


Skyscrapers are antihuman themselves but even they hate cars.
