Two smaller towns come to mine right off the bat, both of which have really turned it around when it comes to the smell. One was Lincoln, Maine due to a pulp mill (known as Stinkin' Lincoln). The other one was Manistee, MI Paper mill I believe (Man-I-Stink). Both due to plants located either in town or close to town. Neither have smelled at all last time I was through them (Manistee every week for 5 years now, Lincoln every 2 or 3 weeks for several years until 2008).

Every major city I've been to stunk. Houston has the refinery stink on the east side, I seem to remember Chicago and New Orleans smelling like putrid water, and New York is just a potpourri of all the scents of life and civilization, from fresh coffee to dog poop.

Bourbon street in New Orleans pretty pungent, a combination of beer, vomit, and urine and San Francisco does smell strongly of urine in some areas because of the homeless population

I hear the complaint about paper-mills making the immediate area around them smell terrible a lot...but I've never (as far as I know) been in close proximity to one. I just don't think of "paper" as having any particularly bad smell....what does a paper mill smell like?

Yea, gotta bring up the paper mills again. I experienced them on the FL panhandle, they smelled god awful. There's also that 1 mile stretch in North Jersey along the turnpike as you're heading to Manhattan that smells pretty bad for a second.

Its the sulfur chemicals that they use and emanate into the air, it has that rotten egg fart smell to it.
