Toxic City Inforgraph - Strawberry Mansion

For this mini project, we were tasked with having to neighborhoods in Philadelphia affected by led poisoning. Our group chose Strawberry Mansion, a well known neighborhood located in North Philadelphia. From our findings, what was most surprising was the fact that 21% of children living there were affected up to 5 micrograms. To know the scale is rather high in other locations, it was just odd it was so low here. Another odd thing I found, was there was more ‘positive’ news for led found in our neighborhood. There was even a website to explain exactly the issue there, at Strawberry Mansion, and how they’re ‘relieving’ the problem.
