Whenever I am going on a longer trip aside from my usual subway ride – I always plan to arrive a bit earlier in order to use the restroom.
The bathrooms at penn station are by no means luxurious – as is the case with pretty much any high traffic public restroom in nyc.
Today’s visit was no different. The queue was long – about a constant revolving line of 10 people, but my wait time was thankfully only a few minutes.
Upon entering the stall I was greeted by the pungent smells – which you always have to ignore in these moments. My stall door was also decorated with a “bride” graffiti tag which may or may not have made my experience more special. I guess I’d rather stare at a tag than someone’s poo smeared on the wall…
One last note – you will always be exiting the restroom with drenched hands due to the lack of paper towels. Seriously, who has the patience to use those hand driers???
