Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure in Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn is a borough of New York City, New York and occupies present-day Kings County. Brooklyn has approximately 2.5 million residents, making it the state's most populous county. Brooklyn sits on the western end of Long Island, where the Hudson River empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Its proximity to Manhattan and East Coast shipping lanes has shaped Brooklyn's economy, which at one time depended heavily on manufacturing, particularly shipbuilding. Today, more than half of Brooklyn's residents work outside the borough, and the economy has become more service-based. Notable attractions include the Coney Island amusement area, with its recently rebuilt Luna Park, 19th century Green-Wood Cemetery, and 585-acre Prospect Park.

Dutch settlers established the village of Breukelen in 1646. Over time, the name evolved to its present spelling of Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Navy Yard, also known as the New York Naval Shipyard, was established in 1801. By World War II, the yard included a railroad spur, radio station, four dry-docks, foundries and machine shops. The Navy Yard was the largest employer in Brooklyn for many years. Following the yard’s decommissioning in 1966, other businesses have occupied the site, including Seatrain Shipbuilding, industrial design firms and artists' studios. Sugar refining was also a major industry beginning in 1730. By 1887, American Sugar Refining Company and other Brooklyn companies were processing 68 percent of the country's raw imported sugar. The Domino Sugar sign was a Brooklyn landmark for generations, as was that of Kentile Floors, Inc., a flooring manufacturer which operated from 1898-1992. Brooklyn's manufacturing base has declined somewhat, as finance, high-tech and entertainment industries have become more prominent, but many specialty manufacturers remain, turning out furniture, clothing, metal goods, and food products. In 2007, pharmaceutical manufacturer Pfizer closed its original plant, which had operated continuously in Brooklyn since 1849.

Brooklyn has a substantial history of manufacturing and construction where asbestos-containing materials were frequently used. Workers exposed to asbestos in Brooklyn are at risk for mesothelioma cancer. We provide information about mesothelioma treatment options in and around Brooklyn at the bottom of this page.

Shipyards in Brooklyn

The shipping industry was truly the foundation of the Brooklyn experience. The access that a Brooklyn port provided to the New York harbor and New Jersey was a major reason for this. Cargo would arrive from across the world to be processed through these shipyards. The Brooklyn Navy Yard was also an important naval vessel construction site, with thousands of ships being constructed on the premises of the now decommissioned shipyard. These factors assisted the New York harbor area in becoming the shipping capital of the world during the hey-day of sea-faring freight.

Shipyards, although important to the economies of emerging urban environments, also represent dangerous workplaces. Some of these dangers may be more obvious that others. One little known danger of shipyard labor is asbestos exposure. The shipping industry has long been associated with a liberal use of asbestos. There are very few aspects of ship construction that did not involve the use of asbestos at one time or another. While there is now a federal ban on nearly all asbestos use, older vessels still present a significant risk. Along with older vessels, foreign vessels which are not held to the same material standards as U.S. vessels, may also pose serious risks. While it is possible for those who sail these vessels to be exposed, it is more often the on-the-ground staff, those responsible for fixing, modernizing, or otherwise servicing these vessels, that are at particular risk. Asbestos was used in plumbing, electrical, and insulation installations within these vessels. Repair work or other servicing often means engaging with these materials in tight and poorly ventilated areas, a menacing cocktail for asbestos exposure. It is important for anyone working on older vessels to be aware of what sort of materials they are working with and what sort of safety precautions they are taking to prevent harmful exposure to asbestos material. For those who may have worked with asbestos materials already, it is important to monitor your respiratory health and ensure that no symptoms of chronic coughing or chest pains develop, which could be signs of a rare form of asbestos cancer called mesothelioma.

Railroads in Brooklyn

The New York City subway system also serves the borough of Brooklyn under the auspices of Metro North Rail, which operates the subway in other boroughs, as well as the Long Island Railroad. Millions of Brooklyn residents, like all New Yorkers, rely upon the subway each day to transport them in their daily commutes. It is important transportation for those who work in other parts of the city, and the nightmarish traffic that accompanies driving in the Big Apple.

While assuredly important to the function of a metropolis, subways and commuter rail lines have also been historically associated with a great deal of asbestos use. Many of the fixtures in these facilities are serviced very infrequently and must be protected against temperature extremes. Asbestos has remarkable insulation qualities and was used to insulate many fixtures in rail terminals and tunnels. These facilities require hundreds of miles of subterranean tunneling and infrastructure which can be dangerous places for those who service the trains and terminals of the Brooklyn subways. There have been reported incidents within Metro North Rail terminals of hazardous levels of asbestos exposure by unknowing employees who were simply fulfilling the duties of their jobs. While symptoms from asbestos exposure may not surface for many years, asbestos is a serious toxin linked to mesothelioma. Even though it has been federally banned since the late 1970's, asbestos is still commonly found in older buildings and facilities including Brooklyn's rail terminals and trains. Those who have worked in these areas could have been exposed to harmful levels of asbestos and should monitor their respiratory health for abnormalities.

Power Plants in Brooklyn

Power plants of New York City provide resources that we as a culture have come to require on a daily basis. The generation of energy is perhaps the single most important factor for urban areas, which are particularly handcuffed to energy supply. Consolidated Edison (Con Edison), is New York's largest energy provider and has supplied Brooklyn with energy since the middle of the 20th century. Con Edison has also been frequently tied to asbestos use in its power grid and related infrastructure.

Asbestos is useful in electrical and other energy fixtures because it is a good insulator, which can be important for electrical and gas fixtures, such as those at power plants. Even though asbestos use was outlawed in the late 1970's many products still contain asbestos installed prior to its federal ban. In power plant fixtures asbestos could be found almost anywhere insulation is required. For workers in power plants, it is important to recognize and appreciate all harmful materials that you may be working with. If there is a question as to the safety of a particular material, leave it alone and seek assistance in determining what the product is and what the safest way to handle it would be. Asbestos exposure can be extremely harmful, even resulting in life threatening illnesses such as mesothelioma cancer.
