NYC Club’s Bathrooms Offer Two-Way View

September 13, 2012 by  

NEW YORK, (UPI) –  The bathrooms at a posh New York nightclub offer patrons an 18th story view of the city — and give pedestrians a view of people using the facilities.

Floor-to-ceiling windows on the bathrooms at the Boom Boom Room allow passersby to see directly into the bathrooms from the street, prompting guffaws from some unsuspecting tourists. And that’s not to mention the patrons who might assume the glass is reflective, offering them some privacy.

“The view outside is exciting, but the view inside is frightening,” tourist David Langdon, 55, of Melbourne, told the New York Daily News. “I saw people waving at me! Sitting on the royal throne, you don’t expect a public viewing!”

The club, attached to the Standard Hotel, which fronts to Washington and West 14th streets, has created something of a spectacle.

Belinda Langdon visited the club with her father and made the mistake of assuming she wasn’t visible when using the bathrooms — until she went outside and realized she’d been in full view.

“You just hope nobody recognizes you on the street,” she said.

Other patrons weren’t bothered.

“Who cares? So people know you have to pee?” said Florentina Ballesteros, who is staying at the hotel.
