This project is over for me. I'm tired of stuffing envelopes. Please email if you'd like to buy maps in bulk. And please check out my current work at tommymintz.com

 

9/15/08: Version 2 updated (v2.2) now available.

I updated the listings and added major landmarks.

Today I went to Times Square and sold the map in person. I will selling again in three weeks, on June 28th and 29th.

I revised the map to be easier to use by color coding areas of the city, resizing fonts and making some major streets bold.

3/23/08: The Toilet Map Unveiled

The New York City Public Toilet Map was unveiled today on Uncle Bob's Variety Show at the Jewish Museum as part of the Off the Wall: Artists at work. After the presentation, a mob gathered at the edge of the stage to buy copies of the map!

10/29/08: Project Over.

Thank you to everyone (over 800 of you!) who bought a map over the past few months. I'm now moving on to other projects. (Such as the Portable Potty Enclosure aka the Poop Tent aka the Umbrella Burka.) If you are interested in keeping up with my other work please head over to tommymintz.com.

If you are interested in commercializing this project, I'd be happy to sell you maps in bulk and make arrangements for updates. I'm really just tired with having to mail out maps...

There once was a boy named Tommy,
Who Showed NYers the way to the John...
When children in the Apple cried, Mommy!
They pulled out the Toilet Map and moved on.

We turned right at the Carousel, and left at the Zoo
With Patience and Confidence now, we walk to the loo.
Good-bye to the stress, anxiety, and fear,
Freud's field day is over, Tommy's NYC Public Toilet Map is Here!!
