SMELL FORCES LONG ISLANDERS FROM THEIR HOMES
Officials say the smell that permeated Plainview, Long Island in Nassau County wasn't pleasant but it was safe. The neighborhood hit next to the Old Bethpage Village Restoration project. Neighbors were certain the combined smell of rotten eggs and sewage came from there. But officials now suspect a private landfill in neighboring Suffolk County. The smell was too much for some people who left their homes for the night.
