New York City residents are pushing back against the deployment of jumbo irradiating 5G towers, with several Community Boards passing a moratorium on 5G. In late January 2022 Community Board 8 which includes Roosevelt Island and areas of the Upper East Side, unanimously disapproved new 5G Link NYC Kiosks stating: “the community-at-large has expressed their views that Link5G is unnecessary and unwanted in Community District 8”. Congressman Nadler signed onto a letter with local officials to oppose the 5G towers requesting more information including hard data to confirm the actual need for these towers.
If you are a resident or friend of NYC and would like to get involved in the effort to keep NYC beautiful and safe from RF microwave radiation polluting 5G towers, contact New Yorkers 4 Wired Tech and Wired Broadband.org to learn more about how you can help.

January 16, 2023 Letter on 5G Poles from New York Manhattan Borough President to Matthew C. Fraser Chief Technology Officer Office of Technology & Innovation of The NYC Office of Technology & Innovation
“…many residents have reported serious concerns about the site selection, outreach, and community engagement process. Residents have reported not adequately being informed about the placement of 5G towers in their neighborhoods, and many have questioned specific site selections and the fundamental need for the new towers taking up vital public space. We must better communicate with the local community, and better educate New Yorkers about these installations.”
