City Council member Peter Vallone Jr. is looking to have wireless providers ask for the city's permission to put cell phone antennas on rooftops. By having a wireless provider go before a community board or the City Council, he hopes to prevent the rampant antenna-ization, saying, "Right now New York has the most lax regulation in the entire country. They put their antennas across from our schools, our playgrounds, and our bedroom windows." This totally reminded Gothamist of the Simpsons episode, Make Room for Lisa, where Lisa's room houses an Omni-Touch cellphone tower, and when she moves in with Bart, she goes crazy.
