BK restaurant gives parkgoers bathroom break

BROOKLYN - The owner of a restaurant near Brooklyn Bridge Park is renting port-a-potties that visitors can use since there are still no restrooms at the new park.

Peter Thirstino, the owner of Pete's Downtown restaurant, says about 150 people would come in daily to use his facilities. Thirstino says he doesn't have the heart to turn them away.

"If you can't go here, you can't go anywhere," he says.

Thirstino says he rented three portable restrooms for $700 a month and will keep them for as long as needed.

The park developer say a temperature-controlled trailer containing eight restrooms will be set up in early May.
