Pershing Square APT Activated?

I have a report this morning that the Pershing Square Automated Public Toilet is now open for business.

Walking home from the gym, I witnessed history in the making. With the help of a serviceman, a man deposited a quarter in the Public Toilet and the door magically opened! I didn't stick around to interview the man afterward, but it was epic, nonetheless.

I haven't been over to check it out, but it makes sense given recent reports of the electrical operating. Using my not-quite-official count, in the end it was a puny 205 days from installation to activation.

Thanks to Bert for the report.

Update (4pm): Don Garza posts some great shots of the APT in use, including the one used above.
