Boston has many wonderful things going for it. Readily visible public restrooms are not among them. We hide most of our facilities away, taunting you, daring you to see if you've got real bladder control. We've tried to flush out the location of restrooms available to the public at no charge. Do you have a favorite restroom in Boston (or one you particularly despise?). You'll find a Comment link next to every listed restroom. Or let us know about an unlisted facility via the Add a Restroom form .

|Top of the heap: Restrooms that are so incredibly nice you'd want to visit them even if you didn't have to go.|
|Good: Almost like using the bathroom in somebody's house in, oh, Concord, only you don't feel self-conscious about using the towels.|
|Acceptable: Sometimes the stalls don't have toilet paper and the sinks could maybe stand to be wiped down.|
|P.U. The kind of place your mother warned you about; you use them only because you're desperate - and you pray that that one open stall, the one where you'll have to prop the door shut with your hand because the latch is missing, has enough toilet paper to wipe down the seat with first.|
