By Annmarie Dean

Check out this beauty from October 1967!  That’s a giant 12-foot parabolic dish being placed atop the Hotel Lafayette.

My favorite part of  the caption from this photo is as follows: “Technicians have been installing the complex microwave equipment that will enable the station to send and receive programs as part of the New York Network.”

Something about the words “complex microwave equipment” reminds me of The Robot from Lost In Space
