Address: New York City Department of Education
Public School 19
185 First Avenue
New York, NY 10003

AQS Number: 36-061-0128
DEC Number: 7093-21
New York State County: New York
Statistical Area: New York City Metropolitan Area
Coordinates: 40.73000 N -73.98446 W

The PS 19 air monitoring station was established as a Federal Reference Method fine particulate (PM2.5) monitoring site in October 2001. The FRM PM2.5 sampler at PS 19 is part of the overall PM2.5 monitoring network used for comparison to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The continuous PM2.5 TEOM was added in June, 2007.

Following the shutdown of PS59, the low volume PM10 R&P 2025 instrument was added to this site, however electrical power problems have delayed the start up of this sampler.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

Parameter information for PS 19
Parameter Sampling Method Analysis Method Schedule
PM2.5 Low volume FRM R&P 2025
Method 118
Gravimetric 1 day in 3
R&P TEOM 1400
Method 702
