Cities are about people, architecture, sounds, colors, and also odors. Sometimes pleasant, sometimes disgusting, smell is an intrinsic aspect defining the character of the city just as it does with humans.
At Gawker (always innovative) they developed the New York City Subway Smell Map, displaying particular smells - horrific and sublime - encountered throughout New York's subway stations and submitted by Gawker readers.
For those of you who still don't know, Gawker is an on-line meeting point for New Yorkers, including all the "in & outs" of the Big Apple. You may be also interested to check their Stalker Map (a map of Manhattan displaying where celebrities have been spotted)
