    The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) carried out a survey to assess the public's risk of exposure in buildings to in-place asbestos-containing materials (ACM).

    Data regarding the presence of in-place asbestos and the potential for exposure to asbestos were collected in 886 buildings from 16 different building categories in New York City.

    Overall 68% of the buildings in New York City contain ACM.

    The estimated total amount of ACM in the city is 323 million ft2 most of which is thermal system insulation.
