New York’s most popular TV antenna can be found at the corner of Broadway and Sixth Avenue, a stretch of pavement that connects the city’s downtown and midtown neighborhoods.
There are also plenty of fishing spots on this stretch, which includes some of the citys most famous landmarks.
“It’s a great place to catch bait, fish for fish, and catch some lobsters,” said Michael Sussman, who owns the restaurant The Boat and is a regular on the city s television talk shows.
“I can’t tell you how many people I see here at this spot every day, and I have to go out and get some bait.”
For many fishermen, this antenna is the place to fish, even if they are not fishing for fish.
Sussmans father Michael Siegel, a longtime fisherman, says his son would have loved to have this spot in the water, but the location makes it impossible to fish.
“We can’t fish in that part of Manhattan, the entire Hudson River,” he said.
“But it’s not impossible.”
Sussmann is also a regular contributor to the local news show “Catch, Catch, Catch,” and his radio show “Million-Dollar Catch” can be heard on WFAN and WNYC.
Siegel said he recently had to hire a new crew because of the weather and he was looking for a new TV antenna, and he thought he would get one at a great price.
“They’re $5,000,” he told ABC News.
“That’s right, $5 million, or about $5.5 million.”
But he said the antenna is a lot less than he expected.
“The antenna was really expensive, but we had to cut the cord because it was going to be out of commission for four months,” he explained.
“If you had a better antenna, you could do it for $5.”
Siegel is now working to sell his antenna, but says he can still afford to purchase it.
“You have to have a lot of money to buy it,” he added.
“At the same time, you don’t want to lose the $5 a month, so I’ve been trying to sell it.”
But if you do buy the antenna, the $50 price tag is on the high side.
“For a $5 antenna, I wouldn’t buy it unless it’s the best antenna I’ve ever seen, because it’s really high quality,” Siegel explained.
The $50 antenna is not the only TV antenna in New England.
For years, Siegel’s company has been working on a $1,500 TV antenna.
“This is our first antenna that we’ve built,” he joked.
“And it’s going to cost $5 to build and $5 per month to maintain.”
It will be up for sale in a few weeks, Sussons father said.
ABC News reached out to Siegel for comment but did not hear back at the time of publication.
New York s most popular fishing spot New York, New York has a wide variety of TV antennas that can be used to catch lobsters and other fish.
There is also an old TV antenna that has been out of service for decades.
The boat antenna is popular with fishermen because it is located in a spot where people can fish in shallow water and have it on all the time.
Sargeant Fish and Game says that the antenna was installed in 1974 and the old boat antenna still works.
“To get the most out of your television antenna, look for the one that’s not out of operation,” Sargeants website says.
The fisherman says that he can catch a lobster on a bait line out on the beach with this old boat.
Sometime this summer, the antenna will be on display at The Boat.
