I always wondered why there was smoke emanating from the streets of New York City, very commonly seen on TV and in movies. Turns out that this is actually steam. The city actually has a steam system which carries steam under the streets of Manhattan. There are businesses that use steam. Very often steam can be seen rising from manholes on the street.
