And a very wide-angle lens. I'm no expert on NY geography -- wonder if anyone can identify the site from the streets and buildings. I have a hunch that there's a manlift inside the structure behind the corner reflector. D'you suppose they're looking for a bird's nest inside the antenna element? Maybe they need a plastic owl(?)

I may be in the minority, but weather aside, the climbing is the bad part for me, not working at height.
