It smells like rancid bacon. I just imagine it: a film of crap on my furniture, on my rugs, on my walls. I actually wonder, is this being soaked up in my apartment? ... Is it in my hair? Do I smell like IHOP now? An exasperated neighbor of the East Village IHOP; residents in a building just behind the restaurant met yesterday to discuss issues including bad smells, noise, and trash.
