Proctors needs to upgrade restroom

Proctors needs to upgrade restroom

Emily Koch, Niskayuna


Yes, our public restrooms are outmoded and need help. I’m handicapped, so it’s difficult to access some public restrooms, scooting up and down stairs.

When my husband and I attended Proctors recently, we sat in the balcony. During the intermission, I waited in such a long line for the restroom that the lights were dimmed as I returned to my seat. The balcony restroom must be at least 100 years old, with only a few stalls, one labeled “out of order.”

We have always known that women take longer to use a restroom than men. Why aren’t there more stalls in women’s restrooms?

I’m willing to start a fund to help Proctors modernize the balcony restroom. Why can’t they design and build one similar to the downstairs restroom? There’s plenty of space. We don’t need a large lounge.
