Old Smokey and the cancer cluster
|The Old Smokey site today.|
There is a large cancer cluster in the area it seems that for decades the toxic smoke and chemicals covered everything. Think of all the people who have lived there for generations; it's really depressing. One older lady was quoted as being born a few houses away from where she lives now. All those years in the Old Smokey neighborhood, all those toxins.
So maybe Blanche Park needs to be decontaminated and maybe that takes time, but what about Carver Elementary and Armbrister Park and all those neighbors who live at ground zero?
