Some of the Polluting Facilities in Northern Manhattan
Represented below are just a few of the environmental hazards placed in the neighborhoods and backyards of Manhattan residents. For the purpose of our organization, the area that we focus on is primarily north of ninety-sixth street. North of this demarcation line is the catchment area we refer to as Northern Manhattan. At the time of the 2000 U.S. Census, Northern Manhattan had 626,968 residents, mostly African-American and Latino of low to mid-income, living in a 7.25-square mile area divided up into 4 community boards (9, 10, 11, 12), 5 neighborhoods (East, Central, and West Harlem; Washington Heights; Inwood), and 13 ZIP codes (10025, 10026, 10027, 10029, 10030, 10031, 10032, 10033, 10034, 10035, 10037, 10039, 10040).
