Alright, here is one for B-R-I's antenna/engineering gurus.
There are 7 stations on the Prudential Center's antenna (92.9, 96.9, 
100.7, 104.1, 105.7, 106.7 and 107.9).
The official NAD83 coordinates are 42°20'50.35"N/71°4'57.18"W, or 


If you plug it into GoogleMap (here, via WikiMapia),


the coordinate point appears to be in the 5th or 6th room from the left, 
on the top or next to top floor!!——nowheres near the antenna's apparent 
coordinate point, which I would say should be (given likely 
dimensional/positional height perspective/distortion) somewheres about 
where the white and red sections meet, +42.347741/-71.082458, or 


Is this legitimate offsetting (due to more dimensional/positional 
distortion than is apparent), positioning error on GoogleMap's part, or 
flawed coordinates (highly unlikely)?
