NYC's Air Quality Is Cleaner Than Ever Since Monitoring Began


New York City has the cleanest air quality since it began monitoring results a decade ago. The New York City Community Air Survey shows that various pollutants in the air have fallen, having a positive effect on our health with the air we breathe. It’s also helping NYC reach their goal of becoming the largest clean US city by 2030.

Monitoring units installed by the Health Department and Queens College have been installed on lamp posts up to 12 feet from the ground. These measure samples of pollutants like particulate matter and nitric oxide, and both of those have declined annually by 28 and 35 percent, respectively.
