With the power outages from Hurricane Sandy this week, we’ve all noticed bad service on our cellphones these last couple of days. Lower Manhattan has been hardest hit with no service…but more often than not, our cell service in Long Island City is mediocre at best.
For those who have electricity and cable service we are able to use our home lines. But those who don’t, need to rely on these antennas, some of which are non-operational as they happen to be on top of the buildings in LIC with power outages.
How is your cell phone reception in LIC? Have had to resort to (gasp!) a street payphone yet?
