My child had asthma when I raised him living near the BQE. He also had high lead levels in his blood work from preschool till KINGERGARTEN. It was not from the paint in our home
It was from the lead paint in playground that dropped from BQE overpass near the Manhattan Bridge ramp in Fort Greene.

I live off Marcy and S1st next to the BQE and have always wondered about the high levels of pm2.5 I could be in hailing. This needs to be addressed now especially during a time where fresh air is so valuable!

The negative impacts of poor environmental policy has forced these communities to breathe toxic air for decades. The health consequences of environmental injustice are now being magnified by covid, with tragic consequences. This injustice must stop, and equitable and sustainable policies must be implemented immediately.

Air pollution is a serious environmental issue that needs to be addressed not only for people that have respiratory problems but because people that don't have problems can start developing them if air quality is subpar.
