On this page, we discuss some examples of work environments where asbestos exposure occurred and we provide a list of New York asbestos job sites:

  • New York Shipyards – In the World War II era, New York City shipyards built a large number of Navy ships in addition to commercial maritime vessels. The largest and most well-known shipyard was the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Workers from a variety of trades including but not limited to insulators, boilermakers, pipefitters, shipfitters, machinists, architects, and carpenters were exposed to asbestos while building and repairing ships at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The asbestos exposure at the Brooklyn Navy Yard was widespread and throughout many decades has resulted in hundreds of people being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

  • New York Power Plants – The New York City area is powered by numerous power stations, also called powerhouses, that historically were constructed and maintained with large amounts of asbestos. The largest power company in New York City is Consolidated Edison (“Con Ed”). Large Con Ed powerhouses, such as the Astoria and Arthur Kill powerhouses, were jobsites where major exposures to asbestos occurred during the initial construction and subsequent maintenance activities including shutdowns. The largest power company on Long Island was the Long Island Lighting Company (“LILCO”). The LILCO power plants, such as Northport, were similar to the Con Ed power plants, and were powered by “units” consisting of boilers that were many stories tall.

  • Large New York City Buildings – The workmen who built the New York City skyline were unfortunately exposed to large amounts of asbestos used during these large scale construction projects. Asbestos was widespread from the spraying of insulation and the work with asbestos-containing products and equipment. Some of the most well-known buildings in New York City including the MetLife Building and the World Trade Center, and even the major New York City airports, used large amounts of asbestos during the construction.
