A cheerful presentation by Jason Logan at the New York Times of an olfactory tour of Manhattan. Much is asked of the viewer in this visual presentation to conjure the smells of New York. But, through the use of creative language that is artfully arrayed in spatial form, we can quite easily imagine the "scents of the city."
