That day NYC looked like Blade Runner 2049

NYC experienced the worst air quality ever on Wednesday, June 7, when smoke from wildfires in Canada blew in and turned the sky orange. Below are some photos I took of my immediate neighborhood.

These photos were taken just after 1pm, when it should have been a bright clear sunny June day.

Looking at the sun over 1st Avenue between 5th and 6th Streets around 2:15pm:

The air was very dangerous and I experienced trouble breathing, so did not stay out long. Let's hope we never see a day like this again.
