The report studies air quality and traffic relationships inside and outside of two buildings in New York City in an effort to assess the extent of the effects of the air pollutants on the health of the occupants. One of these buildings was an air rights, high rise, apartment dwelling, which straddles the Trans Manhattan Expressway near the approach to the George Washington Bridge. The second building was a twenty story office building located on a canyon-like street in midtown Manhattan. The basic objective of the study was to gather and analyze a large statistical base of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, particulates and lead concentrations inside and outside each building at different levels above the roadways and to relate these concentrations to the wind, temperature and traffic conditions which occurred at each site.
