penn station bathroom

sooo, as i continue to rant on the inadequacies i continually find with NY’s culture of maintenance, let me present to you: the paper towel dispensers in penn station’s men’s bathroom! i can only document this positively for the last 6 months, though i know this has been the state of affairs for longer.

here’s what the LIRR is telling its patrons: you are a bunch of schlubs who will take whatever we will give you, no questions asked. you deserve no better than a roll of paper suspended from a garbage bag hanging on a screw and an air freshener. all this from penn station, the hub of NY mass transit!

and here’s what the LIRR riders are telling MTA and the LIRR: you can do whatever you want, b/c we won’t say a thing. we’ve limited any degree of expectation we may have had regarding your level of customer service, because you continue to fail in that regard. your train attendants are usually rude, crude, and have a minimal command of the english language. likewise, we don’t expect you to keep a bathroom (the only one in penn station, mind you) sanitary or civilized looking in any way, shape or form. that constant stench of urine from people missing the urinals? hey, it’s a bathroom! those stall doors that have been hanging by one hinge for 6 months? hey, i wouldn’t take a dump here anyway (that’s b/c the toilets are covered in piss and shit, and there are no sanitary toilet covers – no, really!).

    but frankly having something to dry your hands with is actually a plus for most NY public toilets
