Inexplicably, Grand Army Plaza, a short walk from Prospect Park's many public bathrooms, and steps from the Brooklyn Public Library, will be getting Brooklyn's first high-tech, ¢25 public toilet
, the third to be installed in the city—the first is in Madison Square Park, the second in Corona Plaza. The Brooklyn Paper reports
that the new loo, at the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Plaza Street West (not pictured) is under construction and should be finished later this fall. Once operational, each user will have access to the state-of-the-art facility for a maximum of twelve minutes, at which points a siren and flashing red lights will signal that their time is up and cleaning is going to commence. But aren't there other spots in Brooklyn more in need of public bathrooms? Sure there are, at least three of 'em.
