Reek of the Week: New York City

I spent seven hours this week in New York City. For someone with a hyper keen sense of smell, that translates into six hours fifty-nine minutes of olfactory overload.

NYC smells like a triple-header screening of Avatar in 3-D viewed from the front row

There were so many odors and layers of odors: myriad colognes mixed with all stages of decaying garbage swirling with aromas of truckloads of foods cooking. It was a non-stop bombardment of smells every bit as captivating, headache- and nausea-inducing as watching Avatar 3-D three times in one day while seated in the front row of the theater.

ABOUT “THE REEK OF THE WEEK”

Some odors are especially sticky: in my nose, in my brain and in my heart. Those are the smells that are the topics this weekly Wednesday feature.
