    Default Mystery smell settles over Manhattan

    Mystery smell settles over Manhattan
    POSTED: 12:04 p.m. EST, January 8, 2007
    Story Highlights
    • Mayor Michael Bloomberg calls the odor "unpleasant" but harmless
    • Smell is detected throughout Manhattan and in parts of New Jersey
    • Some buildings are evacuated; PATH commuter train line temporarily suspended


    NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York officials evacuated a number of buildings and shut down some trains after a mysterious gaslike odor was reported Monday.

    A New York Police Department spokesman said an air quality test determined that the air is not hazardous, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said there is no indication terrorism was involved.

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the smell "unpleasant" but said it posed no harm.

    "One thing we are very confident of, it's not dangerous," Bloomberg said. "How long and what the sources are, we just don't know."

    The pervasive odor was reported throughout Manhattan and as far away as Newark, New Jersey, 10 miles west of the Big Apple. In New York, the smell was reported from Midtown to Battery Park City.

    Authorities are investigating the source of the smell. Several buildings were evacuated, and the PATH commuter trains along the Sixth Avenue line were temporarily suspended. The odor had no effect on subway service in the city.

    New York police initially said no gas leak was reported, but a spokesman for Mayor Jerramiah Healy in Jersey City, New Jersey, just across the Hudson River, said the odor was emanating from a leak near Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

    Bloomberg later confirmed a "small gas leak" near Sixth Avenue and Bleecker Street but said the smell appears to be a natural gas additive. Natural gas has no smell, so an additive, mercaptan, is included to give it a detectable smell in the event of a leak.

    However, Bloomberg said that he didn't believe the Manhattan gas leak could account for the smell being reported in New Jersey.

    "We're all working together to pinpoint the nature of the leak," he said. "So far, the city's air sensors do not report any elevated level of gas."

    The mayor said that "these things are normal, happen all the time."

    The police said utility provider Consolidated Edison told officials there's been no drop in gas pressure in the city.

    No injuries have been reported, according to the Office of Emergency Management. .

    I work in midtown. Every 15 minutes we're getting emails telling us there's nothing to worry about. Haven't heard that before...

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Too funny!!! The good news is you will actually remember what your 1000th post was. Noone else remembers their milestone posts.

    Dave torched up some of that bunk weed in celebration of his and the band's hall of fame induction?

    It's probably been caused by the stench of a 15 year old bassist pretending to add something to Van Halen's legacy...
