Health Department to Study NYC Air Quality
NEW YORK (AP) -- The city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is launching a study of New York City's air quality.
The New York City Community Air Survey will use air pollution monitors throughout the five boroughs to measure pollutants.
The data will be collected over the next year from 150 locations, each of which will be monitored for two-week periods.
The department said the locations are mixed in terms of building density, traffic patterns, and tree cover to reflect the variety of environments in the city.
