Did you see the $2 million dollar bathroom? That’s what New York City government spent to build a “comfort station” in a park.
I went to look at it.
There were no gold-plated fixtures. It’s just a little building with four toilets and four sinks.
I asked park users, “What do you think that new bathroom cost?”
A few said $70,000. One said $100,000. One said, “I could build it for $10,000.”
They were shocked when I told them what the city spent.
No park bathroom needs to cost $2 million. An entire six-bedroom house nearby was for sale for $539,000.
Everything costs more when government builds it.
“Government always pays above-average prices for below-average work,” says my friend who makes a living privatizing government activities.
