This parkgoer was PO’d.
An Upper West Facet woman claims her friend was recently traumatized when he was interrupted midstream in a men’s rest room in Central Park by a parade of outlaw women who opted not to use the “fully functional” women’s restroom.
“Today I waited for a male good friend as he was utilizing the men’s place … around 67th avenue by the le agony quotidien cafe. This is a town rest room,” posted Manhattan filmmaker Marianne Hettinger to Nextdoor — complete with image — on April 23.
“I counted at the very least 8 girls who did not know just about every other, go into the mens home with the males, who did not say anything. My buddy arrived out and was very disturbed given that gals had come in as he was relieving himself. What is likely on!?”

“Be happy you’re a New Yorker. In some states, politicians would be campaigning for election on this challenge. And successful,” quipped one particular commenter.
“I’ve been heading into mens bogs for many years, at motion pictures, concerts & stadiums — it is been apparent for years that women’s toilet will need to be made distinct,” wrote Isabel N.
Piped in an additional nonplussed woman: “Same. Any place the women’s line is a mile very long and the men’s line is like, almost zero. I just say ‘Not looking’ and zip into the stall.”
A Central Park Conservancy volunteer told The Article the restroom drama takes place on fast paced weekends and he “often tells females to go to Tavern on the Inexperienced but the gals say it’s also far.”
There are no Parks principles specifically proscribing men and women from applying whichever restroom they choose, the agency said, including, “Our aim is not to problem summonses if we come across an person in a restroom that does not match their clear gender.”
The problem isn’t particularly the No. 1 precedence at the Parks Office.
“When ya gotta go, ya gotta go,” agency spokeswoman Crystal Howard reported. “But, we do request bathroom-goers to be respectful of others’ modesty,.”
