I mentioned this in the New Orleans posting quite some time ago.

Few places smell worse than Bourbon Street at night. It reeks of dead ass. From booze, urine, trash, vomit. . . it's vile. But next morning it's all been washed away and is fine during the daytime. Until the next round for the night.

But I wouldn't say that New Orleans is smelly otherwise.

In fact, parts of San Francisco reek, too ~ during the day!

We lived in Tacoma, Wa. many years ago. With the paper mills it always smelled like garbage. Guess I got used to it. Then it was Dover, De. General Mill had a plant that made pudding. My husband used to think someone in the neighborhood was making brownies.....sometimes it coconut pineapple...yummy. Then a few years after that was Hockessin, De. Mushroom farms........you all know what they throw on mushroom..yuk

The papermill in Albany that's on I-5 (Oregon) is often very stinky. Hard to believe such stench can generate from wood and chemicals.

I remember a neighboring town in Central California that had a swine slaughterhouse within city limits, and that was pretty awful. I don't mind "cow stink" from farms, though. In fact, whenever we road trip through there, it takes me back to my childhood on a dairy farm. A lot of positive memories counteract the cow stink.

Linden, New Jersey has a rough smell but for good reason. All the industrial establishments in Linden and surrounding towns are CRUCIAL to the economy of the NY metro area.

People from a cornfield (esp the ones who have moved to Manhattan) shouldnt bash NJ. The island of Manhattan is far from being self sufficient. Transplants need to realize their livelihood in Manhattan riding around on buses/cabs and shopping at Ikea depends on oil refined in Linden, and cars and goods imported into Port Elizabeth. On top of that, Linden and NJ towns are a much better place to grow up than the average American's hometown of Texarkana or French Lick.

Terra Haute, IN has a nasty reek when passing through, but that doesn't compare to farm fields here in northern IN when the sheet hits the fields...

Yea, its necessary to fertilize, and important for growing the crops, but... nasty smell.

When there was a fairly large earthquake in my area, it opened up a hotsprings in Paso Robles, CA. Unfortunately, the sulfur smell was absolutely horrible and to this day it still smells a bit driving into downtown.

To be honest Baltimore smells, especially when you drive on 95 just north of the tunnel to where the huge salt piles are. There is also some abandoned factories maybe thats why. I've heard New Jersey smells but haven't spent enough time there to attest to itself myself. Oh yeah and NYC smells bad too, the streets smell like sewage like the sewers are clogged up or something.
