The Scrawl on the Wall

around 1:45 pm and feelin fiiiiiiine

Often have I been on the subway, or shopping at Forever 21, or just meandering around Union Square when it happens. The need to use the loo. Bad. And fast.

Now, a little back story... I've been plagued with the occasional indigestion or maybe that pizza slice I ate didn't want to visit too long on the inside and I need to go. This has taught me to memorize the various spots in whatever city and town I'm in where I can relieve whatever is plaguing me.

Strand Bookstore is very accessible and comfortable restroom to use. Granted I only used to lady's side but I'm sure the same goes the men's. I much prefer bath areas where there are one or two stalls. Single person bathrooms make me nervous (especially during #2, the idea of someone waiting for my finish makes going much more difficult) while 4+ stalls often get out of control and wet (ladies, please, are we dogs just out of the rain? How does everything get so, so wet?) Strand has just a few stalls that are often clean, making it easy for a stop and squat, or a sit and stay, whichever you need to do at the moment. I'd rate it 4/5, for convenience and cleanliness. I've frequented this bathroom many times and I've never been disappointed, nor have I, surprisingly, really had to wait.

If you ever find yourself in

If you ever find yourself in Sheepshead Bay, be sure to poop, I mean pop in for a roast beef sandwich with pickles and coleslaw. One of the last Jewish deli's around in this part of Brooklyn, Jay and Lloyd's serves up some of the best roast beef sandwiches in town, and was even reviewed on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations at one point.

The bathroom is a fairly simple affair though; sink, toilet, musty smell. But it gets the job done.

There aren't too many options for a public restroom around this section of Avenue U, and you may as well get some delicious food as long as you're doing the deed.
