Restroom Map Notepad

To find relief for us all
2007

Inspired by Gawker’s Subway Smells Map, Candy wondered if there was a way to alleviate some of New York City’s pungent odors. After using GIS to map out the location of semi-public restrooms in downtown NYC, she wanted to make this information publicly accessible so she created a notepad version and posted them at the 6, J, M, Z Canal St subway stops. The map can be torn from the notepad and used as a vital resource for local facilities as well as facts about NYC’s slim offerings. While New York’s subways offered 1,676 public toilets in 1940, only 28 are open to the public today! 5.5″ x 8.5″, created in 2007, before fancy mobile apps.
