WILLIMASBURG - Many residents in Williamsburg are upset over what they say is increased truck emissions in their neighborhood.

The residents formed an organization, called Outrage, to express their displeasure over the emissions, especially along Metropolitan Avenue.

The group says that it has conducted tests and found that over the past five years, small particle emissions have increased more than 1,000 percent.

The group blames the construction of more than a dozen waste transfer stations in nearby Greenpoint for the added pollution.
