What can I do about neighbor's smoke entering my home?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

The building has an automated air circulation system. Every time the neighbors are preparing food, they use their own modified fan which feeds into this circulation system. This stops the automated system from working, and sends their smoke to us. The building's management has asked them to stop using it, but they continue. Is there anything that can be done about this?
