Buzz·Posted on Apr 3, 201422 Smells New Yorkers Will Never ForgetMmmm...garbage.by Joanna BornsBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Garbage Flickr: rhockens The signature scent of unwanted refuse hides quaintly in each corner of the busy metropolis. 2. Hot garbage Flickr: notionscapital Hot garbage takes regular garbage to the next level in both intensity and gross factor. 3. Subway garbage Flickr: mwichary Subway garbage is like regular garbage but with notes of "been sitting around for a while" and a hint of "can't escape this stench." 4. Rotting garbage Flickr: bettyx1138 A sophisticated garbage. 5. Extra tall stack of garbage Flickr: uxud Additional garbage height adds more depth to the smell. 6. Urine Flickr: praetoriansentry The familiar smell of urine can pop in and out of your life at any time, like an old friend. It's almost comforting. Maybe? 7. Poo Flickr: violettalough Often you don't know if it's from a dog or a human. 8. Burnt street meat Flickr: rhockens Is that delicious meat? Wait no, something's wrong. I'm coughing. 9. Inside of a cab Flickr: bettyx1138 A delicate blend of funk, public car seat, sweat and sometimes, if you're lucky, weird cologne. 10. Fish Flickr: drivebysh00ter Ain't nobody dope as fish, they're just so fresh, so clean. Chinatown. 11. City Dampness Flickr: hisgett Wet cement and the hint of the smell of wet people you often get at a water park. 12. Whatever this is Flickr: barrymcgee The gentle waft of mystery steam. 13. Pizza Flickr: robboudon Sweet, sweet pizza. 14. Soft pretzels Flickr: vilavelosa Smells soft and gentle, like a salty baby. 15. Halal cart Flickr: juliandunn Intense, alluring meat and rice essence. 16. Chestnuts Flickr: mishagl Chestnuts roasting on some dude's cart, Jack Frost killing your will to live. Mobs of tourists loooooooooking for nuts will find them here and also in their hearts. 17. Other nuts Flickr: 16989146@N06 Nut smells lurk in many corners of the city. The popular Nuts 4 Nuts carts allow you to barter nuts you have for other different nuts.**Not how it works. 18. Broken dreams Flickr: -jvl- This gentle, depressing scent floats throughout the city on a breeze of disappointment with a hint of failure. 19. Coffee Flickr: emilyrides The delicious smell of mornings and huffy commuters. 20. Something bakin' Flickr: mishagl Enticing at first, and then, more of a taunt than a smell. 21. Random bacon Flickr: dinnerseries The smell of mass bacon production can hit anytime, anywhere. 22. Misc. bad smell Flickr: mcleod Sometimes there's a smell you just can't identify. It's probably garbage though.
