Best Subway-Station Piss-Odor Pungency (2008)

CANAL STREET

There's no better place to get dim sum and a whiff of urine than CANAL STREET. Take almost any line underground and come out to watch everybody crinkle up their nose, thinking to themselves, "What is that smell?" Feel the sewage from fish drainage above leak below. Watch the woman across the platform leaning on a pole, the dark spot on the front of her gray pants growing larger and larger. Then hop up the stairs and enjoy your lunch.
