Bye-Bye, Restrooms

Bye-Bye, Restrooms

Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently signed legislation that will allow small restaurants and coffee shops with an occupancy of 30 people of fewer to have one bathroom rather than two. Yep, that means the bathrooms are going to be unisex.

But wait, it gets worse.

According to The New York Times: "The changes also brought the city's plumbing code in line with a health department code that allowed places with fewer than 20 seats to not provide patrons with any bathroom."

Long story short, it's going to be much tougher getting to a restroom if you're in a eatery with 30 seats or fewer.

We just hope these restaurants will keep their restrooms clean.
