New Yorkers can breathe just a little easier.
The American Lung Association's State of the Air 2012 report shows the city's air quality is improving.
Only Staten Island received a failing "F" grade for ozone levels, though the report says levels in the borough have improved from last year.
The same goes for the Bronx which improved from an "F" grade to a "D".
Queens and Manhattan also received "D's" and Brooklyn's passing levels didn't change.
City particle pollution levels are also lower with all city counties getting passing grades.
The association says residents can help reduce air pollution, by driving less and reducing electricity use.
They also recommend checking daily air quality levels and forecasts.
