SAN DIEGO (TheStreet) -- We've all been there.
Shuttling around a city all day, far from home and in need of a restroom break, only to discover that the public bathroom options are far from desirable.
Connecticut resident Wayne Parks has been there one too many times himself while visiting New York City over the years.
So the self-professed germaphobe decided to do something about the problem: build a luxurious public restroom alternative.
Parks is launching New York City's first members-only day storage and luxury bathroom facility, Posh Stow and Go.
Think immaculately clean, beautifully designed bathrooms with such things as lockers and motion-sensor flushers and faucets. Many will have showers also.
"It's going to feel like home," Parks says during a recent telephone interview. "It will be comfortable and warm. "
"Everything is tile, 6 feet high -- I don't want fingerprints anywhere. Everything will be wall-mounted, so my crews can keep the floors spotless Everything is unisex. I don't think women should have to see urinals. It's everything I wanted and expect for my family. I wanted to give that to everyone else."
Access to Posh Stow and Go luxury bathrooms involves a minimal membership charge -- $15 annually -- and the purchase of daily passes for the number of days you plan to use the bathrooms. Passes are sold in packages of three, six or 10 days. The cost is $8 a day for a three-pack, $7 a day for a six-pack and $6 a day for a 10-pack.
