I have lived in the neighborhood about 8 years, and every so often there is this disgusting smell that wafts up from the gowanus area. My guess is one of the industrial plants or work on the F train in that area. Recently it has been much worse.
smells like burnt toast / burning hair. IT's really f***ing strong today, almost like the snow is making it worse. IT has like a 10 block radius minimum
I'm wondering if it isn't pretty toxic, it smells horrible. other people must have noticed this
