NYC air quality: July 4th fireworks haze impacting conditions – LIVE MAP

The Macy's 4th of July Fireworks show in NYC lit up the skies over the Hudson River, leaving behind a haze that's causing air quality concerns for Friday.

Why is the air quality bad today

"We have the haze and the smoke, it was leftovers from the fireworks yesterday," FOX 5 NY's Mike Woods said.

Woods, though, says the air quality will get better with time – "This does happen sometimes after the big fireworks shows."
