Cell Towers Continue To Proliferate In Rockaway Beach

Surfside Manor, an adult home at 9502 Beach 95 Street in Rockaway Park has joined the growing number of buildings that house cell towers. The towers on the roof of the seven-story building were put up with the assistance of a large crane late last week. Experts say that the ten cell towers now on the roof of the private home could bring thousands of dollars a month to the building's owners.

There has been some debate about the cell towers, some experts saying that they give off a dangerous radiation that can cause Cancer in humans, but city health officials say that the towers are approved because there is no evidence to substantiate that claim.
