Sid's right. I was thinking of the old WNYC-830 in Greenpoint, which is
visible from the FDR Drive south of the UN HQ (it's directly opposite 22nd
Street in Manhattan).
The WLIB site was at Vernon Blvd. and 30th Drive in Hallets Cove, opposite
the northern tip of Roosevelt Island (and E. 84th Street beyond.) It must
have been a heck of a signal at Gracie Mansion back in the day...
