Boston Globe Runs the APT Story

Part of the fun of something like the recent Times piece on Downtown APTs is watching to see how that story spreads. Earlier in the week I noted that Newsweek grabbed my quote for its perspectives page.

Today the Boston Globe runs the story in its pages. Since it's just a straight run of the Times piece there's no mention that Boston's had similar toilets for several years now.

According to my count we're now at roughly 201 days since the Pershing Square APT got set in concrete.

Update (Monday): Today the story runs in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.

Also, a great quote from an article on the lack of public toilets for patrons of Chicago's rail system:

"To be able to relieve one's bladder is one of the most basic and perpetual functions from the beginning of our lives to the end, and it should neither be treated as a luxury or as a favor," said [commuter Gina] Gibson, who works in the admissions department at the University of Chicago Hospitals.
