When 39 Bathrooms Are Not Enough…

August 13, 2010

This story isn’t in Manhattan, but it was so ridiculous that we felt compelled to share it. Enjoy the idiocy, and happy Friday the 13th!

Ira Rennert’s Sagaponack mansion is the biggest house in the United States. The house, referred to as Fair Field by Rennert, has 29 bedrooms, a synagogue, a play house, 2 tennis courts, and a basketball court. Somehow, however, this is not enough. Fair Field has 39 bathrooms, but Rennert would like to make it an even 40 by adding an outdoor bathroom. Unfortunately, Southampton residents don’t think that they need yet another bathroom.

I am fortunate to have a decent-sized bathroom in my apartment. I have absolutely no reason to complain, but for the many New Yorkers who have to squeeze into an undersized bathroom, Rennert is getting no sympathy from me. If someone cannot make it to one of the 39 bathrooms, then perhaps they should get checked out by a doctor to make sure that their bladder is working as it should. 39 bathrooms is already excessive, so I would like to suggest to Rennert that maybe the money used to build another bathroom could be better used elsewhere. He could surprise a friend or family member with a gift or take a night out on the town. Better yet, he could donate the money towards the Bladder & Bowel Foundation (http://www.bladderandbowelfoundation.org/) if he still wants that money to help a full bladder in need.
