  • Toxic Fumes from Pier 57 at 15th Street

    There was a toxic waste spill at Pier 57 caused by Sandy and while there was an emergency reclamation cleanup with specialized equipment for a week there is currently the strong presence of toxic fumes emerging from the lower level entrances. It will make the hairs in your nose stand straight up and your eyes water.
    Most likely this is from the old bus depot waste diesel, oil and who knows what. Which means among other things, benzene which is an endocrine disrupter.
    Wana have babies?
    Just stay away.
    Will try to pursue this with the bureaucracy but they're pretty busy elsewhere.
