  Bryant Park Public Lavatory, May 2008
by von.otter

Favorite thing: Until New York City makes good on its long-held promise to install public rest rooms along the city’s sidewalks tourists and locals will have to make do with those already established.

One such public lavatory can be found in Bryant Park. It is on the 42nd Street side of the park, close to the library.

There are 16 public restrooms located throughout Central Park. They are as follows.
• Merchants’ Gate, 61st Street and Central Park West (closed winter)
• Heckscher Playground, Mid-park at 62nd Street
• The Arsenal, 64th Street and 5th Avenue
• Sheep Meadow Cafe at Mineral Springs, Mid-Park at 69th Street (closed winter)
• Bethesda Terrace, Mid-park at 72nd Street (closed winter)
• Model Boathouse Cafe, at Conservatory Water at 74th Street
• Loeb Boathouse, 74th Street at the East Drive
• Ramble Shed, Mid-park at 79th Street
• Delacorte Theatre, at the Turtle Pond at 81st Street
• Ancient Playground, 85th Street and 5th Avenue
• Tennis House, Mid-park at 94th Street
• North Meadow Recreation Center, Mid-park at 97th Street
• Robert Bendheim Playground, 100th Street and 5th Avenue
• Conservatory Garden (this area of the Park really deserves to be visited), 105th Street and 5th Avenue
• Great Hill, West 106th Street (closed winter)
• Dana Discovery Center, 110th Street at Lenox Avenue
