From asbestos-containing building material to naturally occurring asbestos, New York is one of the most dangerous states in terms of asbestos exposure.

For years, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority pumped asbestos-filled air into a bus depot in East New York for decades, exposing thousands of people without their knowledge. Every air vent of the bus depot was lined with an asbestos-laced cloth, used to make the air vents less noisy by reducing vibrations.




During World War II, the New York Navy Yard was located in Brooklyn. Before being established as a military shipyard, it was used to build merchant ships.


尽管自 20 世纪 80 年代以来石棉的使用量显着减少,但大量船舶仍然含有石棉来绝缘锅炉、管道、垫圈和填料。造船厂工人在修理和大修活动期间仍然非常容易接触石棉。
