    VZW just turned on a new site on the Paterson / Fair Lawn NJ border, On Broadway.
    I am told it is located on a 7-9 story building.
    ( I'm sure Bobolito knows the place :) )

    Passaic River is in between Paterson and Fairlawn. On which side is it? I'll go and take a picture tomorrow! ;)

    Not sure, haven't been to see yet....
    Should be easy to spot, 4 panels per sector, 2 middle ones (1900) probably a little thinner than the outer 2...

    I have to look around. I don't recall a 7-9 story building in that area. I know T-Mobile has panels on a building right before the bridge that goes over Rt 20, but it doesn't seem that tall. This is on the Fairlawn side.

    If it's on Broadway it's ELMWOOD PARK & PATERSON.
    Maybe it's Fairlawn Ave, then it's PATERSON & FAIR LAWN.
    If it's Broadway then the tall buildings are on PATERSON Side.

    Actually, once you leave Paterson, Broadway sits right in between Fairlawn and Elmwood Park, so it could be either. The side of Broadway where K-Mart is belongs to Elmwood Park but if you go across that belongs to Fairlawn.

    Aslo, if its an 800/1900 tower then it could be a little further back no?

    This is the new thing I found in the surroundings. It looks like it could be Verizon because it looks like a dual-band sector there (different panels in same sector) since Verizon is one of the two dual-band carriers here.

    However, this is located on the corner of Broadway and 27th St on a 9 story residential building in Paterson. It is the tallest building around. So this must be the site Meatchicken was talking about because these panels weren't there before. They are new. The only thing is that it is not so close to the Fairlawn border as I thought. It is about 1/2 mile from the border with Fairlawn/Elmwood Park. Click on the picture to see a supersized version of it.

    Yes, that must be it.
    I remember my VZW contact saying something about their notation being "Fairlawn/Paterson" , but the site actually being in Paterson, & on a Building.
    I ASSumed :) it was on the border .....

    He said that probably because the signal can reach to Fairlawn, maybe all the way to the KMart.
