An analysis of public bathrooms in New York and abroad

About This Book

This booklet highlights the importance of public bathrooms in the public realm, especially in improving public health and promoting human rights. We summarize research compiled over the course of a year from our readings, interviews, meetings, and analysis related to public bathrooms. We hope this booklet will serve as a resource for citizens, advocates, architects, urban planners, elected officials, government agencies, local business owners, and others to understand the benefits of public bathrooms, in the hope that we can increase the number of available facilities in our city.
