"Right to Breathe/Right to Know: Industrial Air Pollution in Greenpoint-Williamsburg"

This executive summary is an excerpt from a larger report on industrial air pollution in Greenpoint-Williamsburg produced by Hunter College's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) in 1992. In addition to a brief analysis of the Brooklyn neighborhood's air quality, the report offers suggestions for clean-up.

Officially founded in 1990, the COEH spent decades dedicating itself to promoting community and workplace health throughout the New York area. It offered courses on topics ranging from asthma to ergonomics for unions, neighborhood groups, public employees, and others.
