Absolutely if you’re privy to the newly-renovated Manhattan public bathrooms. Free of charge, there are three stalls for women and two for men (with three urinals as well) and have a 310 square feet division. Located behind the New York Public Library, they feature artwork, classical music, fresh flowers and imported tiles.
The renovation – privately funded by the not-for-profit Bryant Park Corporation – has been (not surprisingly) extremely well-received by tourists and residents alike who are thrilled with the renovated facilities. In addition to Bryant, Toto (Japan’s Number 1 sanitary ceramics manufacturer) and Brill Hygienic Products Inc. (America’s sanitary toilets and clean toilet seats manufacturing and distributing company) donated to the cause.
Bryant Park executive director Dan Biederman was likely to have been pleased with the final product, as he said: “ we strive for perfection and only settle for excellence.” Clearly they’ve achieved their goals!
A few years ago, Bryant Park itself underwent an overhaul, given its propensity to urban decay and crime.
