San Francisco Is Building a $1.7 Million Toilet

San Francisco secured $1.7 million in funding for a single (yes that's right, just one) toilet. While this might seem like an aberration, it's not the only toilet to come with such a price tag. City officials were proud of the funding they had secured for the public restroom, until word of the cost got out and outrage ensued. Watch this episode of America Uncovered for why San Francisco's Rec and Park's Dept. says the single bathroom will cost this much, how much a house in the same neighborhood costs (spoiler: it's less than the proposed single public toilet), and how New York City tops San Francisco when it comes to expensive public restrooms.
