Toxicity Map, also known as the NBN ELI (Environmental Legacy & Improvements) Map, is a tool for learning about and collaborating on environmental hazards in Greenpoint & Williamsburg. Data used to compile this map came from city, state, and federal sources, guided by on-the-ground knowledge from local activists. Data layers on the map can be clicked through to understand certain neighborhood trends, such as population density and asthma- related hospital visits, and can also help locate specific sites, such as the former NuHart Plastics factory and the Exxon oil spill.
