‘You Could Be "Smoking" a Pack of Cigarettes a Day Just by Breathing in City Air’ - a recent headline by Science Alert.
New Yorkers are breathing some pretty grimy air, according to a report which is likely not going to shock too many city dwellers. Every borough except for Brooklyn recorded a grade F.
Did you know that the highest concentrations of dangerous PM2.5 particles In NYC are in Manhattan and areas directly across the East River in Brooklyn and Queens? Most of the Bronx has high levels of PM2.5.
Brooklyn only escaped getting an F because no monitoring data was available. [Source: Patch]
