A (bath)room with a view
This is the third post in the series “My Bucket of Crap List.” Check back each week as Nuriel flushes out the truth on Columbia’s lavatories.
For this week’s installment, I went right to the comments of the first in the series. Near the top, from commenter “6th Floor Schermerhorn” I got a one word proclamation: “Gloryholes.” Intrigued, I visited that men’s room today, but did not find anything of the sort. In my defense, my gloryhole-finding skills just aren’t up to snuff.
Feeling unsatisfied, I vowed to find another bathroom in that unpronounceable building worthy of profile. I found one on the 8th floor of the Shhhhermermerhorn Extension.
Tech specs: three stalls, three sinks, two urinals, two enormous mirrors and one window from heaven.
The way the light flows in from the east-facing window and shines off the pristine porcelain is hard to put into words. It’s perhaps the most inviting bathroom experience I’ve ever had. I tried to rationally convince my body that I had to go, but that unfortunately didn’t work. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the view out the window and the breeze of cold air that came in.
If you’re ever a male in need of a bathroom in Skuhrrrmerhorn, make the trip up for this one. It’s extremely clean, absolutely invigorating, and while there are no gloryholes, if you’re ever in need of two eight-foot-long mirrors, you’re in luck.
