Coating Season by Borough

Focusing coating efforts in designated neighborhoods - Long Island City, Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and the South Bronx - NYC °Cool Roofs helps to reduce the Urban Heat Island Effect in New York City. One million square feet of cool roofs should reduce New York City’s carbon emissions by 500,000 lbs or 227 metric tons. This reduction is equal to removing 50 cars from the road or having 300 New Yorkers not drive for an entire year.
