The Rock Tenn paper mill in West Point, VA. Hopewell, VA has some bad days with Honeywell Chem Plant and Rock Tenn located literally across the street from each other. South Richmond from Maury Street to Chippenham smells bad from a mixture of sewage, water treatment, Dupont and Phillip Morris.

SF smells like urine in many places. Manhattan smells like rotting garbage in the summer. But Gary is the most putrid place I've ever been.

Any large, urban city (NYC, Philly, Chicago, SF, etc.) will have pockets where it stinks, especially during hot, humid summer days. In my personal experience, though, the only city I've been to that consistently smells is Greeley, Colorado, north of Denver. Hopefully things have changed for the better, as it's been awhile since I've been, but that whole city (pop 100k) smells like one giant barn.

Years ago, Minneapolis used to smell like grain, I suspect from all the mills. Almost like a town where breweries are concentrated. Wasn't a disagreeable smell at all, just unusual. I was working in Denver at the time and when we'd receive shipments from our sister company in MSP, it would have that odor. We'd joke about it. Haven't been up there in 15 years, anyone from MSP that can comment?

Santa Maria, CA sometimes smells like crops or fertilzer, it is worse when it gets real windy.

When the wind is blowing the wrong way, Amarillo has the most nauseating stench I've ever experienced and it's not a bad city at all. But that smell!!
