The NYC Smell Matrix
There's a never-ending barrage of sensation thrust upon you when you live in NYC, and at least 50% of that is weird smells (the other 50% is mostly car horns and getting splashed by things).
With so many competing smells, sometimes it's hard to tell the good from the bad, which's why we created this: The NYC Smell Matrix, wherein we plotted out all of NYC's smells using two axes -- one that measures love to hate and one that measures delicious to gross, because, as it turns out, there are a surprising number of nasty smells that we actually enjoy.
Keep scrolling for the full matrix and a closer look at each of the quadrants.
