Sky watch: A breath of fresh air heading into the weekend

As we're cutting-and-pasting from AccuWeather: "Air quality levels have significantly improved in New York City since Wednesday afternoon." 

As of Friday morning, the Air Quality Index (AQI) was at 36 in New York City's Central Park. The "fair" air quality level is a significant improvement from the "very unhealthy" and "dangerous" levels it was at on Wednesday. 
At 4 p.m. on Wednesday, the AQI was at 413 for NYC — historically high levels that haven't been seen in decades (the good old days!) for NYC, as NBC 4 and other outlets pointed out.

Goggla took the above photo on Wednesday afternoon from Seventh Street and Avenue A... by Tompkins Square Park and the Samuel S. Cox statue. She has some more shots from around the neighborhood here.

Midtown view from the East Village this afternoon. A faint outline of the Empire State Building ... no sign of the Chyrsler Building, MetLife Building, etc. 

Per Gothamist
The smoky haze descended on the Northeast from blazing wildfires in eastern Canada, covering swaths of New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Delaware. A stalled nor’easter in Maine is blocking the jet stream from following its normal movement, funneling the air mass south.

The result? A thick smog that makes it hard to breathe and smells like one big campfire. 
The city has issued a warning about outdoor activities...

Holy smokes, that sky today!

You may have noticed the orange, smoky glow in the sky today...
Per NBC New York:
The wildfires in the eastern provinces of Quebec and Nova Scotia are sending smoke pouring back into the New York City area again on Tuesday, causing smoky, hazy skies and some of the poorest air quality in the country [world!] this week.
... and a Midtown view from the EV around 6:30 p.m. ...
The state's Department of Environmental Conservation issued an air quality health advisory through midnight tonight.

As someone on Twitter said about today's sunrise: "I love when New York shows up."
