The tap water in New York City is some of the purest, healthiest water on the planet so the bottles being filled with tap water is not a bad thing. The bad thing is that no matter how pure the water is once it goes into a plastic bottle it's worse for you than any tap water in the US.

The tap water in NYC goes into the glass cloudy, and one must wait for the clouds to settle before it becomes clear. This is neither pure nor healthy. It is treated, a necessary evil in a metropolis, yet the case.

I remember the story about huge about of traces of medication and fertilizers in city-tab water, so I do not think that is so great to drink. In the medication group, they were talking about antibiotics, anti-depression meds, etc. No good! Especially for kids it is not safe!
