I hope this doesn't ruin things for pancake lovers. Maple syrup and New York streets?People are trying to figure out the source of a mysterious odor that is wafting over parts of the city and into New Jersey. It reminds most folks of maple syrup. This is not the first time New York has emitted the aroma of an IHOP gone horribly wrong. About four years ago the smell was traced to a facility in New Jersey that processes seeds for curry powder. And there have been at least nine other incidents reported since 2005. The syrup hunt marches on! DB
