An alert citizen holds his or her nose with one hand and types with the other near the old turnpike-authority building in the North End:
2 days going now, walkway across greenway smells like something died in there .. Real bad stench
The city replies:
It has been confirmed that there is nothing decaying in the area. The odor is from the organic holly-tone fertilizer recently spread and will dissipate in the next few days.
