The Rave on the New Public Bathroom

Admit it. We’ve all had one. You know, a bathroom emergency. Here you are enjoying yourself in the Big Apple, or simply just running to work when it hits you. It just hits you. You run to the closest Starbucks or even McDonalds only to find a sign saying “Bathroom for Customers Only”. Your office or destination is far too far to make it, so you go to the last resort, a public restroom only to wish you did hold it. Now a new public bathroom has been on the news for the past few days for being a “fancy” public bathroom.

All hail the new $300,000 public bathroom located in Bryant Park. Like the thousands of New Yorker’s or even tourists that just refuse to do their business in public, this may be a more plausible solution. New York City just opened up their new fancy bathrooms in the Beaux Arts building right near the public library. The bathroom features classical music, imported tiles, and fresh flowers to take out that nasty public smell. Did we say it’s public? The bathrooms are inspirations from a more private one such as the Waldorf Astoria and other upscale hotels.

Out of town companies provided some assistance with the renovations, such as Japan’s luxurious toilets company, Toto, supplying their toilets that save energy by self-flushing, as well as hands-free faucets. A company based in Delray Beach Florida called Brill Hygienic Products Inc. supplied electronic seat covers.

The bathrooms have everyone talking as no New Yorker is used to such a luxurious bathroom in such a public space. The now famous potty rooms are open to the public from 7 A.M. until midnight during the upcoming summer months but as the weather gets colder it will only go on until 10 P.M. No tipping is allowed at these establishments.

I am a firm believer in patience, and believing that with patience all good things come with time. My motto has always been, if you want to be known, be known for something good, and informing the public is good to me, whether it be threw my writing or reporting, is a good way to be known. With a passion for everything New York City, I am driven to know what goes on in it every hour of the day. My dream has always been to live the 'city life', but besides dreaming about that life, you can catch me traveling the world, as I have been to over ten countries, or constantly reading the news and getting informed as to what goes on globally. I am a person who likes to know and be informed at all times. To me that is key and my mentality is always set to learn more on what goes on in our world in order to inform my public and be the best journalist that I can be.
