How safe is the YMCA renovation in Hoboken?

I changed the name of the Hoboken YMCA to “whY Must Chemicals Appear” because we received a few reader letters wondering what this milky, soapy liquid was running off the YMCA renovation at 13th and Washington Streets.

Since it’s already known that toxic asbestos was inside the YMCA – everyone is wondering what this noxious and not-natural looking waste is in the street. Does it contain asbestos? Is it lead-based paint? Irritating thinner or other chemicals?

Either way – and especially those with dogs – avoid stepping in this liquid at all costs!
