Congratulations to New York City and her citizens for their tenth anniversary of the Smoke-Free Air Act! In spite of the strong, and sometimes downright ugly resistance to the legislation, the naysayers got it wrong. NYC is thriving and better yet, an estimated 10,000 lives have been saved due to cleaner air for both residents and visitors. But New York is not alone. In the last ten years, approximately 500 other cities have adopted similar policies. Healthier air? Come on now, that’s good news!
