That is an act of pure genius... Not being one for heights, sitting there I probably would need a loo!

Should have been closer to the window. Allthough the view is probably very good.

True, nobody's going to see you there because there are no other skyscrapers nearby.

For those who would like to get the experience, the Yotel in New York has compact design rooms which has placed the toilet next to the facade. You can see one in the image below looking through the glass of the shower. While sitting on it you get great views on the Times Square area.

the interesting thing is, that while taking the shit and forcing lots of pressure, you actually have the feelings for sightseeing, it is so awkward like how in the 21st century you are on your phone in the toilet!

The Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne once had toilets with a view, from about 30 or 40 stories up. From the city, the view looked out to the south east icluded much parkland and the MCG our beloved cricket ground. Not sure if they're still there...

Those are some great photos!!

Makes me feel kinda naughty. I'm a little bit of exhibitionist so.....hahaha!!!

The only thing I dislike about that one in NYC is that the bathroom is behind only a curtain.

I know this may seem ironic considering what I just said but....I need a door when using the toilet!!!!
