I live in Manhattan, and last night, while I was at my computer, I smelled the scent of maple syrup. It smelled so good, that I almost made some French Toast...at 11:00pm, mind you. I figured that the maple syrup smell was from a neighbor cooking some pancakes or the like. Little do I know, this "mysterious" maple syrup smell was detected by almost everyone in Manhattan!! It is all over the news and the newpapers here. NO ONE is saying what is is...they're saying they do not know. If anyone here lives in Manhattan, I'd love to hear your theory. Some are whispering "bio-terrorism", and I'm a bit freaked.
