A Clean Public Bathroom


There's a new public bathroom open in New York City; and it's anything but a dump.

When you think public bathroom, you think concrete walls, a lack of toilet paper and a constant odor; especially if that bathroom is in the middle of one of the country's most populated cities. But this public bathroom is nice, so nice that it might even put yours at home to shame.

The bathroom which features air conditioning, fresh flowers and imported tiles recently opened behind the New York public library in Manhattan. After a $300,000 renovation people who just have to go can enjoy LED lighting, art by local artists and self-flushing toilets and sinks.

The renovation was paid for by the Bryant Park Corporation, a not for profit that manages the city owned parks and works to improve business in the neighborhood. Attendants with cleaning supplies keep everything clean from seven a-m until midnight during the summer and until ten during the winter. This might be New York’s next biggest tourist attraction.
