Eons ago I worked in an architects office at Southport and Clyborn in Chicago. Back then it was a fringe, scruffy industrial neighborhood, now, looking at streetview its filled with crap retail...it looked better with abandoned buildings and Sammy's sandwich shack...but I digress...Within blocks of our office was a wonder bread factory and not far from that, somewhere near the canal was a tannery...a more foul combination of odors could not be imagined.
I learned in school that it was the smell and discharge from tanneries that spawned the concept of urban zoning..
My current office in Syracuse is in a neighborhood filled with restaurants and I am usually downwind of the smokers at the Dinosaur BBQ...much better...
