This isn't as bad as it looks
First off, its the town of Hempstead.
But, back to the point, these insane NIMBY's have been at this for over a decade. They've successfully stopped numerous cell tower projects in the village of Merrick, and I for one think its great! Why? Because I live in the village of Bellmore. It is the neighboring village, and the cell companies that want to provide coverage in Merrick have put their towers up here instead. Cell coverage in Merrick is fair at best, but I get GREAT signal!
