a 100.000-dollar toilet

But not, as you might think, in the villa of a billionaire, no: it’s just a public restroom in New York’s Madison Square Park.

“Indeed, the toilet calls to mind not a port-o-let, but rather the sort of room one imagines adjoined the personal quarters of Capt. James T. Kirk on the Starship Enterprise. It is a 25-cent journey to the future — and, almost secondarily, a not unpleasant restroom.”
