Those aren't even remotely close to being the worst bathrooms in New York.

What?  No bloody diarrhea all over everything?

Why do most have the exact same floor tile?

NewportBarGuy: Why do most have the exact same floor tile?


Extremely common tile here.  One of the cheapest you can buy and incredibly easy to lay on a badly poured, uneven surface.  It not only hides defects in the subfloor, but is hard to detect when one of the 12" sections is laid in badly, too.  Also: easy to repair and have the repair look like the original.

None of the actual worst ones, have a seat, and lid that are intact.

I gotcha. I'm in the process of planning out new tile for my bathroom and I'm going with something similar. I always loved the NY subway tile so I'm copying that (white 3"X5" tiles with black accents) for the walls. I can swear that my aunt and uncle on 14th St have the same floor tile in their bathroom.

I'm now scrubbing the floor tile idea and going with something else. Simple white hexagons with that Greek mosaic border.

My bathroom is more disgusting than half of those.
 
2013-03-25 12:21:37 AM  
Yeah, that was really lame. Everyone knows that you do not under any circumstances take a dump in a bar bathroom, so pictures of the toilets instead of the urinals make little sense. Unless you're a woman. And it's not like the toilets were all that bad. "Oh no - there's lots of graffiti on the walls! THIS IS THE WORST BATHROOM EVER!" Fark off, you sissy.

And the worst bathroom in the Manhattan and Brooklyn area is the one at the Greenwich Treehouse in the West Village. While MacAllen says he particularly likes the bar, it is the smell coming from this unsightly bathroom that really has him peeved. "It's one of those, hold your nose and get out of there as quick as you can," he says.

The whole goddamn city smells like warm garbage and stale piss, and you're complaining about the smell of the bathroom?

2013-03-25 12:42:23 AM  
yeah, that was pretty lame.

Graffiti does not make a public restroom gross. Most of them actually looked fairly clean. I guess subby or whoever took those pictures never had to use a toilet in a gas station.

The worst toilet I never used was an outhouse in a national park. The ones at Rocky Mountain were pretty gross - thank gawd I didn't have to take a shiat there, but the one in Big Bend that was 8 miles up a hiking trail in the mountains was so bad I didn't even walk into it. The flies and the stench were so overwhelming I almost passed out just opening the door. I took a shiat in the woods instead.

I'm not sure how they could have possibly cleaned it. You couldn't drive a truck up there to pump out the sewage. The only real solution I can imagine is to burn it down once a year, fill in the hole and build a new one at least 50 feet away.

I'm pretty sure the person that wrote this article would just shrivel up and die if he ever had to take a dump in a vault toilet.

What's the matter with this one?
Poor lighting? A missing tile?
There's a toilet brush available ferchrisakes.
I've been in places where you were glad that you didn't have a hole in your sneaker, because there was at least an inch of piss on the floor.
Vomit in the sink was a given.
Thank you Daily News for letting me see your paid advertisements though.

I think the worst public restroom I was ever in was in Grand Central in Chicago.

They had an automated machine that would place a fresh plastic cover over the seat, but that just made it worse for some reason psychologically. Not to mention all the crazy-acting, likely homeless, smelly people in there.

The best public restroom I was ever in was in a McDonald's just over the border of Canada. We were there at about 5 am, and it was obvious that the place was used to a huge influx of traffic at certain times. It was practically abandoned when we were there, and the massive bathroom was spotless and could be used in peace and privacy.

Numbers 6, 7, 8, and 10 look pretty harmless to me. I've spent 'quality time' in far worse.

None of those looks bad.  Certainly nothing like you common kybo, with or without the spiders...
 
2013-03-25 06:00:13 AM  
I had to pull into a McD's at the Imperial Hwy exit on the 110 in Los Angeles once to take a leak.

Bathroom was spotless. Would pee again. A++++

Never been to NYC. They're keeping it real. I thought NYC had turned into disney world. After seeing these, although admittedly they're not that bad, I wonder if Stephan isn't exaggerating too much about New York's hottest club.
 
2013-03-25 06:03:34 AM  
Those toilets all look pretty clean.


I think most of us have seen at least one feces, vomit and blood covered bathroom in our lives with multiple overflowing toilets and literal rivers of shiat and piss.
 
2013-03-25 06:12:53 AM  
I've been to Burning Man and would have deliriously happy with any of these toilets, as none of them have mountains of sh*t peeking out of the top of them.
 
2013-03-25 06:16:43 AM  
India, Bangladesh, even Egypt have are worse toilets than NYC.

Does NYC still do that thing where they AW all the time because once, for a couple of years after WWII, it was actually a cool place but ever since it's been in terminal decline?

Those aren't too bad at all. They look like any hipster bar bathrooms I've ever seen. Two experiences that stick in my mind (and on my shoes) were taking a leak on St. Patrick's day at a bar in Hartford, CT and having emergency sit-down time in a latrine off the Blue Ridge Parkway. In Hartford I was wearing leather soled shoes and the floor was a lake of piss. Ended up using an alley, because let's face it, Hartford itself is a giant toilet. At the BRP the building was unlit, the previous occupant apparently had the same issue I had and didn't make it all in the bowl, and I had to brush away copious rodent turds. Thankfully I had my own TP, because the mice ate all of the stuff that was once on the roll. What's worse, mouse pee or tourist pee? I dunno... maybe cat piss?

the worst bathroom is when you can't find a bathroom at all. there's a test of self you'll always have as a souvenir.

The worst bathroom I ever experiences was at the beach in Waianae on O'ahu. I walked into the women's bathroom and all of the toilets were filled with mountains of TP, poop &
Who knows what. People had taken to using anything that would hold liquids or solids. The floor was just awful too. Im guessing homeless were using it hardcore, but you'd THINK for as beautiful as Hawaii is that the state would watch the beach bathrooms closer. And you'd be wrong. There have been some ok beach bathrooms, but Waianae's was the worst ever. One look in there & I was like, "Nope. Won't have to pee until we get back to civilization now." Barf. #NoAloha

FTR, my dad once encountered a bathroom so bad during a bathroom emergency, he resorted to using a mop bucket in the hallway of the store.

Rather than never show face in that store again, my dad returned the next day to buy something & had to make another emergency run to the bathroom. Surprisingly, not only had the bathroom been cleaned from the day prior, but the store had purchased a brand new mop bucket!

I'm guessing someone lost a job in that mess.

That's the same tile on my bathroom floor, which incidentally is spotless.  I was getting progressively more disturbed as I kept seeing it in the slide show.  While the explanation makes sense, I picked it of my own free will.  Or did I?  Now I'm wondering whether the contractor steered me towards this one without my knowing it.

CBGB's was pretty disgusting and would destroy everything on this list.  I have been to quite a few bars in the city and this list doesnt even come close to the shiatters I have seen.  Since I have yet to be to the new Yankee Stadium, I will say the old stadium was one of the worst toilets I have ever been to.  I never could understand why people can't just piss in the toilet instead of on the wall and floor.

I've thought about going to Burning Man before. it looks like it might be fun, but you just convinced me not to.

/that is unless I bring my own gas-guzzling RV that has it's own toilet.

Those are the tashma freakin hall compared to the shiaters that I've been in in Mexico.

The bathroom scene in Desperado had it about right.

JohnnyRebel88: I will say the old stadium was one of the worst toilets I have ever been to.


Tiger Stadium, 1999, upper deck, right field. Somebody had hurled into one of the trough urinals. On top of that was seven innings' worth of urine.

I've never seen anything so nasty, and this is coming from somebody who spent two summers cleaning up fermented roadkill.

Article, I am dissapoint... The stalls at Irving Plaza for the KMFDM show were far worse than any of those photos... Brown streaked toilet paper on backs of toilets, pea on the seat, floor, walls, and door, logs left floating as a challenge to the next occupant...

My first thought about the graffiti as well. I've peed in way worse bathrooms than those, the American in Vancouver is pretty nasty, and the toilets in Cuba are usually overflowing with shiat, both are easily worse than any of those bathrooms.

Maybe the photographer of this slideshow should stop going to hipster bars whose patrons have never had to clean their own bathrooms.

These are nothing. That place on 9th Av with the free hotdogs (Rudy's?). Well I shat on a rat there.
Crimped off a pretty sizeable portion, went to flush & saw a good sized rodent with half a kilo of my dirt fudge on it. Free hot dogs though.

1, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
2, has toilet seat, top to cistern and a sink. would pee again
3, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
4, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
5, has toilet seat and paper and a free beer! would poo again
6, has toilet seat and paper (on the floor but clean). would poo again
7, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
8, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
9, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again
10, has toilet seat and paper. would poo again

What the fark is wrong with these people? They just don`t like graffitti...

You know you are in a bad toilet when there is no seat, the cistern has been pissed in, there is piss AND shiat on the toilet pan, floor, walls AND ceiling, no paper and a pyramid of shiat rising six inches above the pan edge...

I have been to that toilet. These are lovely.

Also, if that is the worst toilet in scotland then that`s not as bad as some of the ones in england...
