"Morning Call" broke into a press conference by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg was answering questions about a "mysterious" gas odor that was filtering through Manhattan and parts of nearby New Jersey today. So far--there's no source for the smell. More importantly--there are no injuries--though some 27 people are said to have felt sick. It's not sure if all are related to the odor.

All subways are back open in NYC--and all businesses that may have closed are too. Bloomberg says there's no need for concern right now. Consolidated Edison-- the natural gas supplier for the city--said it was investigating to see if it is a natural gas leak.

FYI: mysterious odors come and go in the New York City area--but sometimes are not identified.
