Is your city one of NPR's "Poisoned Places"?
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.

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