NJ Transit: Bathrooms fixed at NYC's Penn Station

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Transit says its bathrooms at New York City's Penn Station have been fixed.

A passenger in June had complained that a broken mirror and tissue holder were being held together with duct tape. NJ Transit Executive Director Jim Weinstein and state Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpson said last week that they were embarrassed to learn nothing had been repaired a month later.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. tells The Record newspaper the bathrooms have been fixed and will be monitored hourly instead of 3 times a day.

Amtrak owns Penn Station. But NJ Transit hired a contractor to keep the bathrooms clean.

    Realty TV star Kim Kardashian probably wished she did have one before she walked down the aisle with Kris Humphries. We might never have known about Tiger Woods' cheating ways if he had one. And figure skater Johnny Weir is insisting on one as part of his post-nuptial agreement. What is it? A digital privacy clause.
