From the Daily News:
The Upper East Side of Manhattan, a posh neighborhood famed for luxury buildings and Hizzoner's home, has a high number of dangerous pollutants in the air, the Health Department's New York City Community Air Survey shows.
"There are wealthy neighborhoods where the map is really surprising," Bloomberg told reporters while at a climate summit conference in Copenhagen.
He predicted when New Yorkers see the survey, "They're going to say, 'Wait a second, it's not as clean as we thought.'"
The survey also showed poor air quality in Midtown's business district.
Officials said the congestion of cars in that area was likely to blame and credit the ton of fuel-burning buildings on the Upper East Side for the pollution rates.
So you mean tall buildings do not reduce the carbon footprint and having a small house with green space around it actually is better for the environment? Wow, what a crock of shit we've been fed all these years...
