Day 794

Antenna King

March 3rd, 2014

From the pages of The New Yorker:

. . . the Antenna King showed up with his wife, Rosanne Langan, the Antenna Queen. He is tall and gregarious, with a shock of silver hair and the stiff knees that come from climbing up to thousands of New York City roofs. As he began to hold forth, the Queen nodded silently, with an air that suggested that she had heard the King’s broadcasts on many occasions and understands that the signal is still strong. "The story of the Antenna King is an interesting story of how a man started a business and good fortune came along," the Antenna King said. . . .

    Interesting stuff…looks like the king’s kingdom has seen better days though…like too many other mom and pop places!

    Back before FIOS and all that stuff, we needed an antenna and bought there very well. Great prices and products.

    NYC does little business in a big way
