Parks Department to spend $2.6 million on bathroom, sitting area at Brooklyn playground - NY Daily News
The city has budgeted the hefty sum to restore the dilapidated comfort station at the Bedford Ave. park. Parkgoers were relieved to hear about the makeover, but some felt the price tag was too high.
"In 2013, the city unveiled plans to build a $1.8 million composting green latrine that will convert human waste to plant fertilizer in tony Prospect Park. The bathroom at Bill Brown Playground has limited hours and — as was the case on Thursday at 4 p.m. — it’s frequently closed."
