Finding a public bathroom in New York City is an art form. Local New Yorkers and tourists often struggle to find public facilities while out and about in the city. Oftentimes you’ll ask where the nearest bathroom is and be directed to a location blocks away. Some places require purchases from those just looking to relieve themselves.

There have been many attempts to document restrooms across the five boroughs, but it wasn’t until Tik Tok that bathroom seekers were able to preview public facilities across the city.
