Jim Craner at maptogether.org was kind enough to feature a recent EDF project on his site.

The interactive map lets people find which buildings in New York City are burning the dirtiest heating oil.

(This is the oil behind the huge puffs of dark smoke that you see coming from rooftops up there.)

I was sad to see that the beautiful building where my cousin lives, and where I’ve enjoyed staying, is one of the offenders.

Find out how we created the map on Jim’s blog.
