    After two years and $2.3 million, Queens park still awaits public toilet

    After two years and $2.3 million, Queens park still awaits public toilet - NY Daily News

    A costly restroom facility in Elmhurst contracted by the city nearly two years ago is still under construction, and it could end up costing even more than originally indicated.
    The comfort station at Elmhurst Park the former site of the Elmhurst Gas Tanks was originally quoted at just under $2 million in July 2010. The city has since raised the price tag to nearly $2.3 million. And parkgoers continue a scramble to find places to relieve themselves nine months after the park opened.
    Yet another illustration of why government should be given as little money as possible.

    A private effort could have gotten this thing done for box of twinkies in comparison.

    2.3 million to build a restroom?What the **** over.Are they building this thing out of granite or marble walls,counters and stalls?Are the faucets and other plumbing fixtures made out of gold and the toilets and urinals made out of fine china?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
