1) Sell them off as individual bricks, use the rest to build condos on site.

A) One of those things falling over could hurt some endangered spider or mouse, think about their lives.

IV) Anyone under 15 years old doesn't and won't care, so sell some keep the stacks stiff municipal bonds that mature and are due in 30 years.

Fact: In New England, the Olde Mill Towns all have smokestacks. Most, if not all, have been converted to housing or business offices.
ProTip: A "Smokestack" is a 5G celltower made out of brick (ergo: no multi path like metal towers, excellent service)

If I ever build anything that someone thinks they have to raise money to preserve for all time, I'm going to come back as an angry ghost, knock it over and yell, "Build something else you idiots! Embrace the future!"

Go figure. A wind pylon is an eyesore, but those lovely crumbling brick thingies are just romantic, don't you think so, dear?

My gut reaction is that if they are unsafe, tear them down.

Just yesterday, I found that my lamp was leaning (not a metaphor) in the living room. I looked at the base and found that the base had come off. It was concrete that had more or less disintegrated to sand. Crumbled. For no particular reason. I looked at a piece of it and it had a sticker on it. Made in China. I am not making this up.

I thought immediately of apartment blocks. And then I vacuumed the mess up.

If those towers are masonry, they are crumbling. They WILL come down someday. Humans should probably choose the time for that to happen.

Do they not know that what goes up must come down? Possibly on someone's head. If they are unsound, then take them down in a controlled way.
