NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s a plan to build a $1.8 million green bathroom in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
The park has seen a growing number of annual visitors in recent years, with 10 million people visiting in 2012.
“We have not been able to keep up with adequate bathrooms,” Christian Zimmerman, Prospect Park Alliance’s Vice President of Design and Construction, told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman.
The Wellhouse, located near Lookout Hill in the southern part of the park, was originally built in 1869. The small brick building is the oldest structure still standing in Prospect Park.
