Ignoring the question of noise from the high-line completely,
I would be concerned about living within the EM field from the
blasted thing.

You need to research RF exposure and cancer.  I've got a brain cramp
on the physician-ham's name, but I specifically recall a presentation 
at Dayton on the available data concerning physiological susceptability
of humans to electromagnetic fields.   Both fundamental and modulation
frequencies were addressed....and there appears to remain substantial
questions around 50-60Hz.  

We KNOW the bloody thing will be noisy @ HF, at some point.  Take a slow
stroll under it and see if you can FEEL anything.  Here in NJ, at our old
place, we used to walk the dogs under a 138KV line on the way to the park.
I could literally FEEL when I was under the lines.
