New York Shitty Day Ender: The (Field) House On Poo Corner

This, dear readers, is what the McCarren Park Ladies restroom looked like today. Why is there such a long line, (at least 18 people are clearly visible) you ask? I honestly do not know. But if I was to hazard a guess I’d say one of the toilets and perhaps the sink are not functional. As last Memorial Day weekend will attest, this is not an uncommon occurrence. It does however, beg the question as to where my intrepid Greenburgers can do his (or her) business. Well, I am pleased to report that I have (albeit accidentally) stumbled upon the answer! It’s a little place I like to call “Poo Corner”.

And some of you might be amused to know it is located directly behind the field house where our purported “Parks Administrator’s” (whose job is to be on top of this sort of thing) office is located!

P.S.: Lest you ladies are wondering, the mens bathroom isn’t much better.

  2. Yikes. Thanks for illuminating this situation once again. However, it’s time we stop blaming the parks officials, at least entirely, and put most of the blame on the toilet users. People, what is wrong with you?! Toss tissues etc. in the trash, wipe the seats (“if you sprinkle while you tinkle…”), flush the commodes, don’t throw paper towels into the toilets. In other words: demonstrate some manners! Why should a Parks & Rec worker have to wipe up your sh*t? Honestly! That’s just plain RUDE.

  4. The parks that don’t have toilets, need them. And the existing park toilets need to be functional. There’s too much time & money being spent on programming and not enough time and money being spent on basic maintenence and operation.

  6. Interesting fact: the workers at the McCarren Park Pool have no less than three Port-O-Lets to use. Counted them myself.
