What's that smell????

Chowhounds: with your highly developed senses of taste and smell -- and your knowledge of NYC -- you're my only hope!

I work in Long Island City, pretty close to the Citibank building and Silvercup Studios. For months now, on and off -- and depending on the weather? -- I smell this sweet, strawberry-like, almost jelly doughnut odor. It's all over the place. And the fact that I can't quite identify it, or even figure out where it's coming from, is driving me insane. I should be working right now, in fact, instead of posting on this board, but until I figure out what this smell is and what's making it, I can't concentrate on the job at hand.

So: any ideas? Some days I think I can smell it as far away as the Pulaski bridge, but I think that might be from a different source since it's pretty far away from my office. Those would have to be some very large doughnuts...

Please help!
