One of their people just posted on Facebook that all console TV’s are free, and there were some good ones, a 27” Sony, some Zenith System 3 sets, RCA XL-100’a and what appeared to be an RCA CTC-10 Color roundie from 1960.

Well worth looking into if you are near Brooklyn and can transport and have room for the sets.
