Luxury Manhattan restroom for $8 a day

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

As a reporter in the field, I can have a hard time finding a clean bathroom or even a bathroom. There are always public toilets, like the men's room at Penn Station if you don't mind people taking baths, and washing their clothing in the sinks.

With that in mind, Wayne Parks has created a members-only day storage and luxury restroom facility called Posh Stow and Go.

Like a clean roll of toilet paper, it's everything rolled up in one: Private bathroom stalls, lockers, and even a lounge.

But why would people pay $8 to use them, plus a $15 annual membership when you can pop into one of Manhattan's many bars, restaurants or hotels?

I showed the pictures of the Posh Stow and Go to some folks to see if they would use it. At around 2,500 square feet, they would bigger than some people's apartments.

The 8 bucks does cover a day's use from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

It's not a done deal yet, though.

Parks is still working on getting the leases for locations near Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal.

So, until these posh potties up and running, you'll just have to hold it.

    White flags raised at Brooklyn Bridge

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.
