Yay! I'm officially a squatter! I love walking my dog, and I realize that humans and animals are universally alike in many aspects... particularly in the gastrointestinal department.

steak, potato chips, and some fries

The great thing about Bobby Vans is that one can basically sneak in whenever they want to. Since this place is always hustling and bustling with people, it's very easy to go in unrecognized-- either as a potential customer waiting in line for a table, or someone finishing up a meal. This is always my go-to pit stop when I'm in the Grand Central area.

What I Did in Here: stinky bomb

ramen, and some water

This place is absolutely incredible. The toilet is on the 6th floor, and is the finest publicly-available 5-star toilet in New York City. I highly recommend this venue.

The toilet paper, soap, and amenities are everything one can expect from the world's most luxurious jewelry store, at their finest and most striking location at the heart of 5th avenue.

The sheer fame and prestige of this venue are second to none, and the fact that their toilet is publicly accessible is a huge bonus. One can literally walk directly into the venue, ride the elevator up to the 6th floor, and make a left towards the toilets.

This is as as close to free 5-star treatment as it gets!

What I Did in Here: Thoroughly enjoyed myself and made good use of the VERY fine toilet paper

bistec tacos, enchiladas verdes

I don't have any real complaints about this place. The only downside seems that the hipster waitstaff up front aren't the types that would let one use the toilet without being a paying customer. The hostess was texting on her phone the entire time, and paid little attention to any of the customers at the venue.

My husband and I had the enchiladas verdes (green enchiladas, for those of you that don't know Spanish), and 2 of the steak tacos each. The food was delicious, but overpriced after factoring in the portion sizes. Beware. I left here still a bit hungry, despite a main entre and 2 tacos.

The toilet is all the way in the back, near the kitchen, on the left hand side. It is what one would expect from any LES toilet (except for Sunshine Theater, of course)-- very tiny, cramped like a closet, and barely closed. The door was literally held shut by a small metal latch that looked like it could break with a strong shove-- so no real privacy, either.

What I Did in Here: made water and poopie

crab and pork soupy dumplings, pan-fried noodles, relieved

Joe's Shanghai Restaurant is my favorite place to poop at when I'm in Manhattan's Chinatown. It's so easy to masquerade as a customer waiting in line. Nobody cares or pays attention. The staff barely speaks any English, and especially if you're a foreigner, they leave you alone. It's more than simple to sneak to the back of the venue where their mens/womens toilets are located. The good news about these toilets is that nobody really checks for genders. This means that I frequently use the men's toilet, despite the fact that I'm a female. I'm sure the vice versa happens as well.

Joe's Shanghai Restaurant is famous for its signature dish: its crab and pork steamed soup dumplings. Seriously, these dumplings are so flavorful that I thought I was going to have a food attack!

Despite the food being delicious (albeit overpriced with tax + tip counted into the final bill, cash only), the toilet is literally a shithole that barely gets the job done. It reeks of urine staining the floor from the hundreds of patrons that use its services on a daily basis. I would advise bringing your own toilet paper here. If it's too disgusting, try opting for the opposite gender's toilet.

Despite the shitty conditions, I still give this toilet a 3-star rating due to its accessibility and no-questions-asked policy.

What I Did in Here: farted a lot, pooped. peed. pooped some more.

thai iced tea, lemonade, elated

F.A.O. Schwartz aka America's biggest toy store is a great place to use the toilet if you're ever in the Midtown East neighborhood and can't find a spot. Since there are too many customers walking around on any given day to count, there's no way they can keep track of who is, and isn't a customer - so they just let everyone into their toilets. This usually is the case with large establishments.

There are toilets on every floor, and they are clean and well-maintained with ample soap and toilet paper.

As a bonus, you can walk out after using the toilet and feel like a child in wonderland again with all of the toys and stuffed animals everywhere.

Highly recommended.

What I Did in Here: I'll leave it to your imagination.

green curry, calamari, and thai iced tea. feeling full

The toilet here resembles a lot of other Brooklyn toilets: well-stocked with toilet paper, clean, small, and smells like an old house. I came here the other day after stumbling upon it accidentally, and the food was delicious. The staff seem fairly nice, and if you ask politely during non rush hours, I doubt they would deny one the luxury of taking an emergency stop at their toilet.

I'm giving this venue 3 stars, because the toilet was a bit too small for my liking, even though it can easily be 4 stars in someone else's opinion.

What I Did in Here: #1, did my makeup, and filled up my dog's water bottle

fish & chips, content with my empty bowels

I just want to say that the toilet at this venue is actually located at THE EDGE, a high rise apartment complex that is located in the last photo below. If you enter the main lobby, simply ask the doorman in a friendly manner for the toilet, and he will be agreeable.

This is literally my favorite place in Brooklyn to go to on the weekends. It is right by the shore, overlooking a very scenic stretch of Manhattan from across the coast. I come here very frequently with my dog, and the food here is absolutely incredible. If you ever need a toilet break, simple walk over to the lobby at THE EDGE, or any of the surrounding residential building complexes.

What I Did in Here: I did my makeup and pooped. There, I said it. Girls poop. And fart.

coffee, satisfied

This is my usual coffee stop along the way of my morning commute from Brooklyn -> Manhattan. The restroom here is pretty typical of a starbucks - long line, but gets the job done. I presume that I'll be coming back here quite frequently in the future.
