Percentage of NYC Parks Bathrooms Rated "Unacceptable"

The office of New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer recently released a scathing report on the uncleanliness of New York City parks bathrooms titled Discomfort Stations: The Conditions and Availability of NYC Parks Bathrooms.

NYC Parks comfort stations have fallen into disrepair, subject to poor maintenance and hazardous conditions. Among the 1,428 NYC Parks bathrooms, nearly 400 sinks, toilets, walls, ceilings, changing tables, and other features were damaged or missing during their latest inspection. Over 50 “hazards” were identified that presented the chance of moderate to debilitating injury. And, in nine Community Districts, more than a quarter of NYC Parks bathrooms were deemed “unacceptable.”

Check out the full report to read more about the state of our NYC Parks bathrooms.
