Ever since we featured America's Next Top Toilet — aka the bathrooms at the East Conservancy Plaza at Longwood Gardens — talk of Philadelphia bathrooms have been popping up everywhere. Philebrity highlighted a recent request for proposal put out by the Philadelphia International Airport as part of the city's Percent for Art Program to art-up the renovations of the restrooms in Terminals D, E, and F. Three artists or teams of artists will win one of three separate commissions worth between $25,000 to $44,000 each. But wait, there's more.
There's also been an interesting discussion taking place on the Twitter machine. It centers on whether Sister Cities Park, and public parks in general, should have public restrooms available for visitors, not simply paying customers.
