MTA tower in Tarrytown set to come down after community complaintsPosted: Updated:
An MTA cell tower that has caused controversy in Tarrytown is set to be dismantled.
The MTA has previously said that the tower improves public safety but residents have complained about the 150-foot tower that was built near a playground and an apartment development.
The MTA now says the tower will be removed by the end of the weekend.
State Senate Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins wrote in a statement, "I am glad that the removal of this tower has begun and that a solution that works for all parties has been found. I was happy to help in this important matter but I especially want to applaud the local community which stayed strong, stood up for our local quality of life and fought to get results."
