When I lived in New York state in the late 80s/early 90s, the haze was so bad most days that I couldn't see the sun even with cloudless skies...

That made me laugh, even though I dont doubt its true.  One good reason solar observers should advocate the use of electric cars for better seeing conditions.. sorry sorry I ment better air quality. There does tend to be worse transparency in the city and skyglow might be worse because of it. When I visit the west coast of Ireland the transparency and dark skies are a little over whelming. In fact there  are parts of the sky that I think I know well, when there or just out of the city I am just lost in a blizzard of stars. Its sometimes also a little heartbreaking.
