Curiosities: Follow Your Nose through NY

I go to New York at least once a year, and while I'm walking, say, those 6 blocks to my destination, I catch a whiff of the most delectable smells. Right before I can even fully exhale, the overpowering stench of eau de public restroom mixed in with something utterly unholy greets me at the next crosswalk. Jason Logan, an op-art editor from the New York Times, came up with a cool "Scents and the City" interactive feature that lets you click onto various sections of New York and read up on the various smells that can be found there—from "onion mixed with cough drops" to "lemon balm." You've gotta admire him for the research he put into this!
