I see London but not France



"The Telestroscope is an artistic landmark created by artist and inventor Paul St George that allows people in London to visually see people in New York and vice versa in real time. They can be found by the Thames near the Tower Bridge and the other on Fulton Ferry Landing by the Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

The website publicizing his device claims that the mechanism works via a very long tunnel running through the earth’s crust with the images bouncing back and forth which not many would believe. A more realistic explanation of how it really work would be that it must be using optical fibers to provide high resolution video using a broadband Internet connection."
