Attention Residents of Greenpoint, East Williamsburg, and Maspeth:

Are you worried about health problems caused by the pollution in your neighborhood? Would you like the opportunity to tell your story?

If yes, then you may want to be interviewed for a community health project that aims to document the public health concerns of individuals residing in communities along Newtown Creek in NYC. The study will be conducted by a collaborative team from the Urban Public Health Department of Hunter College/CUNY, HabitatMap, and the Newtown Creek Alliance.

As a resident of Greenpoint (Brooklyn), East Williamsburg (Brooklyn), or Maspeth (Queens), you are invited to participate in the study, which hopes to capture residents' experience with illness and environmental pollution in their neighborhood.

Participation will provide you with an opportunity to have your story documented in your own words. With your permission, the information you disclose will be displayed in written and audio format on a website ( and in a written report that will be disseminated to community members, media outlets, elected officials, and other interested parties.

In addition, we are looking for individuals interested in joining our Newtown Creek Research Team. Training will be provided on how to conduct and record one-on-one interviews.

Community involvement is important, make your voice heard!
