Kodak's Eastman Business Park is one of the sites listed in NPR's new report on the nation's air polluters.

NPR and the Center for Public Integrity rolled out the results of their latest investigation today. The series - called Poisoned Places: Toxic Air, Neglected Communities - examines some of the 17,000+ facilities that emit hazardous chemicals into the air.

While the report singles out Ohio, Texas, Illinois, Louisiana, Wisconsin and Indiana for having some of the most egregious offenders, the legacy of manufacturing has definitely left its mark on upstate New York.

Below are maps of our upstate cities - and the polluting facilities the EPA is keeping an eye on.
