The following is an excerpt from my piece “The Bathroom Attendant: 20 W 29th Street” as seen on Harry’s Five O’Clock Magazine:
Welcome, sir. And won’t you allow this gentleman to open a set of brass doors for you? And then allow a second gentleman to open a second set. Pass low tables packed with bearded freelancers basking in the blue glow of their MacBook Airs. Ignore the delicious smell of freshly fried scotch eggs wafting through the air. The food can wait; there’s business to attend to. Traipse down the stairs, list to the right and here it is: A black-lacquered lavatory suitable for graphic designers, entrepreneurs, and you.
