Isn't it great that the former industrial areas of LIC are being converted into a "vibrant" residential community? (Notice that "diverse" is a word that's never used to describe this nabe...) So what if it's toxic?
There seems to be some continuing issues with the toxic remediation of the remaining portion of the Queens West site at the Hunters Point waterfront. There’s been a growing number of complaints about petroleum-like odors emanating from the site and causing illness in the neighborhood.
If you smell something, say something.
Okay, how about this comment?
The petrol smell is pretty bad at times, the frequency of it occurring varies. Has anyone ever noticed the same smell in the area water supply? For some reason, now and then the water takes on a subtle but noticeable gas scent.
I have been getting migraines ever since the remediation began. Sore throat as well.
Certainly there can't be any more concurring sentiments...
the entire neighborhood has stunk like gasoline the last week or so. you can smell it as soon as you get off the vernon jackson stop and it worsens as you head toward the remediation sites. not a sulfur smell, its a definite gas / oil smell.
Well, at least there'll be a view you can enjoy before you'll have to start chemo treatment.
