Wavy Air

nyc.jpgDoes anyone else smell that? There is apparently some sort of massive leak somewhere that is permeating much of Manhattan with a gassy smell. The initial thinking is that the smell is originating somewhere in Chelsea. For a city that has been on a high state of alert for 5 years and is generally extremely high-strung, it is particularly unpleasant.

Some buildings are being evacuated, but it is not widespread. In the buildings that are not being evacuated, at least one office dork is making the “Did you have beans for breakfast?” joke to everyone he sees.
