Gawker collected, processed and posted smells from travelers in the NYC subway system into a google map. The next time you are in NYC wondering if that smell was a combination of poop, corndog, armpit and cabbage, you can pull up the smell map and confirm (or even contribute to the map). From the site:
Introducing Gawker’s New York City Subway Smell Map. Created from reports sent in by Gawker readers, the map displays particular smells — horrific and sublime — encountered throughout New York’s subway stations. Mouse over any station to see the station name, subway lines, and types of smells to be found there. Click on any station for a popup with actual reader smell reports.
