best place to take a poop (2008)


Most of the time we dispense our #2 into the water of our mundane toilet bowls. But the city offers more entertaining places for evacuating the tail end of your alimentary canal—its 52 outdoor public pools. Our favorite: the HAMILTON FISH POOL, because of its proximity to the bistros of newly fashionable Clinton Street. So put the "bath" back in "going to the bathroom," and enjoy relief from the heat and intestinal cramps at the same time. After you do your business, swim away quickly and enjoy the colorful comments roused by your fecal frigate. Hamilton Fish is open from 11 till 7 on summer weekends, so your b.m. can be a.m. or p.m.
