Did anyone else smell maple syrup in New York City last night? I noticed it when I left my Hell’s Kitchen apartment last night, thinking it was the trash bags on the sidewalk. I then caught a whiff of it again in the East Village waiting outside a resturant before meeting some folks for dinner…The New York Times reported today:
An unseen, sweet-smelling cloud drifted through parts of Manhattan last night…Reports of the syrupy cloud poured in from across Manhattan after 9 p.m. Some feared that it was something sinister…By 11 p. m., the search had turned up nothing harmful, according to tests of the air.
