Potsdam, New York: Toilet Garden #3

One of three "toilet gardens" placed in vacant lots around town, between 2004 and 2015, by frustrated landlord Hank Robar. The flowers are plastic, but the dirt-filled toilets and urinals are real.

Toilet Garden #3

The driveway off Pine Street is pretty rutted, so drive slowly. Its lined with toilets, visually reminiscent of cemetery headstones. The toilets along the Rte 11 side of the garden have a Tiki flair.
