Following up on the Daily News story last week about a "Bermuda Triangle"-like couple of blocks around the Empire State Building in New York where some fancy new cars have trouble with their electronics and are repeatedly being towed away because they won't start, The New Yorker's Lizzie Widdicombe trolls the neighborhood with an Electrosmog meter to detect if there is a preponderance of radio waves emanating from all the transmitters atop the city's tallest building. The results: “I have a theory,” Michael Gati, a cabdriver for thirty years and co-tester of the airwaves for this story, said. “I think the building might block the antenna waves right underneath.” "An eye-of-the-storm scenario," Widdicombe writes.
