Introducing Gawker's New York City Subway Smell Map. Created from reports sent in by Gawker readers, the map displays particular smells -- horrific and sublime -- encountered throughout New York's subway stations. Mouse over any station to see the station name, subway lines, and types of smells to be found there. Click on any station for a popup with actual reader smell reports.

Smell something? Say something to subwaystink@gmail.com. Give us the station, subway line, and the smell you detected, and we'll incorporate your report into the map.

That's really interesting. If I ever go to NYC I'll be sure and stay away from 8th ave. and 34th street!

I was thinking that Union Square would require a large buffer zone as I would not like to ever whiff the stench described herin (Like the wet, rotting asshole of a 500-pound dead man who didn't wipe his ass too well before he kicked it).

so true, so true! They should also give mention of the elevators in the subway station. I was in one at 14th street and 9th ave and I can only describe the smell as ungodly and not of this world!
