Don't breathe too deeply in the subways. It could be hazardous to your health - Elijah Bruce's Blog

Don't breathe too deeply in the subways. It could be hazardous to your health - Elijah Bruce's Blog: A Diary of a Madman and his pet grasshopper Larry - Lulu.com

This blogger has it right. Sometimes the New York City subway stations smell like sewage. Why? Perhaps it is all the litter and gunk still left on the tracks from days on end. Mix in a little mouse and rodent problem and PRESTO!, you have the smell of sewage!

There are other smells within the New York City subway system as well. Like urine, feet, and other smells you can name. However, the most frustrating smell is the smell of an unknown odour that you just can't put your finger on (or is that nose?).

Even worse is when the stench is on the subway train. The smell of rotting feet in the "are those still socks? socks" has to be the worst.

How can you tell the smell is going to hit you before the doors open at the station you are going to board the train from? Look to see if the car is nearly empty or full. If the train car is full of people, chances are its safe. If the car is near empty, then WATCH OUT! There might be a funky smell comin' your way.

That my friends, is a quick lesson on New York City Subway smells.
