Verizon Nitrogen Tanks
Verizon maintains nitrogen tanks on streetlights citywide. The tanks are used as part of the process of cable maintenance.
Poles and Wires
Utility poles and the wires between them are used to provide electrical, telephone, or cable services. They are primarily owned and maintained by utility companies, such as Verizon, Charter Spectrum, and Con Edison. The poles are usually made of wood. To report a problem with electrical poles or wires, use the Electrical Complaint page.
Streetlights have metal poles, and are usually powered by energy supplied through wiring located in the base at the bottom of the pole. They are rarely powered by wires strung between poles. The City's Department of Transportation maintains streetlights. To report a streetlight problem, use the Streetlight Complaint page.
