I feel in the entire Mumbai area, Borivali west (LIC Colony), Goregaon east (Aarey colony) has a good air quality. Thanks to the lush green cover.

People who say things like "i've been living here since 23 years; i dont find any problem with it" need to get out of their houses and travel around a bit. The same pillar-to-post makes you no expert to judge the cleanliness of an entire city. Go to any railway station and see people doing the spit marathon. Walk on a skywalk and see the food people drop carelessly. See the garlands people throw into Bandra creek/Juhu beach just to satisfy their piety. See how conveniently people throw wrappers outside of a running car/bus. See any roadside vendor who has an overflowing dustbin. If you stay long enough you'll see him throw it in some corner. And why not, all our public dustbins are overflowing or bottomless. Travelling to and fro between your college/office and home with the headphones on and eyes glued to the screen will not help you know better.

@utsav: I think you have hardly lived in any other metro, specially talking about NYC? are you kidding me? wake up dude!! Doctors advise you not to go for a morning run but walk due to high carbon content!! Like check out what Beijing and NYC feels like in terms of air quality.
#Utsav on Sep 29, 2013 :
I dont think so....the air quality is not that bad..Compare it with any international it beijing or NYC..its better than them..some amount of pollution is bound to b there in a huge metropolis..And quality of water is good too.i've been living here since 23 years.And i dont find any problem with it.Though I have problem with the roads and infrastructure of this city.And also overpopulation.But still quite comfortable and free compared to other cities.
#kevin on Jul 04, 2013 :
