Can you hear me now? Probably not if you live in Greenwich Village.

Senator Chuck Schumer's office released a list of cell phone "dread zones" to amNewYork, and the neighborhoods with the most complaints of dead cellphone service reported to his office's website include Greenwich Village, Long Island City, Midwood, the Annadale sextion of State Island and the Norwood section of the Bronx. Schumer wants major companies like Verizon and AT&T to "raise the bar." "Simply put, the Big Apple shouldn't be home to dead zones, let alone almost 200," Schumer said. Does Schumer actually have sway with phone companies? Who knows? But Schumer shared the data with the companies and some have reportedly said they'll work on improving the dead zones.
