Rutgers Expert Says Allergy Season Blooms Early Again This Year. Dr. Leonard Bielory, an allergy specialist with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and the Rutgers Center for Environmental Prediction, says that pollen season this year has started unusually early and has come on stronger than normal. Pollen levels in March for the New York/New Jersey area were the highest they have been in 25 years. The Pollen Count in New Jersey is Breaking Records, which is in addition to the fact that it was the warmest March on record according New Jersey State Climatologist and Rutgers Professor Dave Robinson.
