The loved/hated Hotel Pennsylvania across the street from Madison Square Garden on Seventh Avenue is currently fighting for its life, but one thing that's probably not helping the landmarking cause is the hotel's willingness to be shat upon. Oh, we're just kidding, big guy! But when The Real Estate ran a press release announcing that one of the amenities the hotel was adding for the convenience of Westminster Dog Show attendees was a "his/her's relieving area," we thought, "Hey, that would make an amusing picture." Sure enough, the Times' photo essay reveals the basement boudoir. And yes, we're as surprised as you are that they bothered putting plastic down.
