Right at Bryan park; there were two organized lines in front of a small build with a guard on the main door. This place is counted as one of the best restrooms in USA! The guard was there to organize when and who goes in, making sure everything inside the restroom is organized. Music is running, fresh flowers, nice photo frames on walls and a smart toilet. the building itself has a special design!

The nicest, best maintained public restroom I have come across in NYC. There are attendants on hand to ensure the restroom is clean and lines remain orderly. I had to wait in line for a while. However, it was worth the wait.

In a humble restroom, where moments unwind,
A man finds solace, seeking peace of mind.
Within the tiled walls, a silent retreat,
Where nature's call meets a tranquil seat.

He steps inside, a sanctuary found,
Where privacy echoes without a sound.
With whispered relief, he takes his place,
A moment to pause, in a private embrace.

In this quiet chamber, time slows its pace,
As thoughts and worries find their brief erase.
He contemplates life, his mind's gentle flow,
A respite granted from the world's ebb and woe.

Within these four walls, a humble throne,
He finds a moment to be alone.
A pause in his journey, a sacred break,
A chance to reflect, an interlude to take.

For even in mundane tasks we undertake,
There's beauty hidden, if time we could make,
To cherish the stillness, the gentle reprieve,
As the man finds solace, in this space he perceives.

So, let us honor these moments of pause,
In sanctuaries small, where silence draws,
For in life's journey, both big and small,
The bathroom's realm is a sacred stall.

As far as public restrooms go, this is about the best it gets. Surprisingly nice, and it even has classical music playing? Definitely the place to stop if you have the choice. The only downside is that there may be a lengthy line.

5 stars. Continually went out of my way to use these toilets.

Very well maintained, the "keepers of the line" were outstanding and efficient.

Classic musical so you can relieve your ears as well as your bladder.

And as an added bonus Bryant Park, where they are located, is an awesome place to sit and chill. Hell, you can't even smell any weed as it's no smoking.

I recommend as a must see destination for NYC.

If you're looking for a public bathroom that's a cut above the rest, the Bryant Park Bathrooms are a must-visit in New York City. This Beaux-Arts building boasts a luxurious restroom experience that's truly unmatched.

Located in a city where finding a public restroom can be a challenge, the Bryant Park Bathrooms are a true oasis in the desert. Don't expect grimy walls or dirty toilets here - the facilities are upscale and impressive, with fresh flowers, artwork, and classical music setting the scene.

Despite the limited number of stalls (just two for men and three for women), the Bryant Park Bathrooms are a popular destination for park-goers and pedestrians alike. The fixtures are high-end and the attention to detail is impressive, with bathroom attendants on hand to assist with your needs.

Funded by private donors, the roughly $300,000 renovation in 2017 transformed the restrooms into a truly special space. The fixtures are the same luxury brand used at the MoMA, and large frosted glass windows let in plenty of natural light.

It's clear that the donors weren't flushing funds down the toilet, as the Bryant Park Bathrooms have become a must-visit destination for anyone in need of a quick bathroom break. However, be prepared for long lines during peak hours.

Overall, the Bryant Park Bathrooms offer a welcome respite for anyone looking for an upscale restroom experience in New York City. With their elegant design and attention to detail, they prove that even public facilities can be transformed into something truly special.
