Toilet Lid Sink

One thing about apartment hunting in New York City when you are not feelthy steenking reech is that no matter how nasty you think the last apartment you saw was, the next one will inevitably be nastier. We once looked at one in lower Manhattan that had the shower in a what was basically a closet, just off the kitchen, and the toilet in another closet at the far end of the apartment.

The toilet was 300 feet from the kitchen sink, which was apparently also meant to be the bathroom sink. Gross! We wonder if places like this (and there are many in the city) would've looked better to us had the landlords installed something like this $89 Toilet Lid Sink, which saves space as well as water, by using the water you washed your hands with in the sink to flush the toilet.
