Precious paper rationed
CONEY ISLAND, NY — Strapped for cash, the city has started rationing toilet paper along the Coney Island boardwalk, according to the New York Post.
Female beachgoers have been forced to form "ration lines," while restroom attendants hand out a few squares per patron, the article stated.
According to the article, the Parks Department has refused to say how much money has been allotted for toilet paper and other supplies.
"Never in my life have I experienced anything like this," said Regina Ballone of Brooklyn.
"I walked toward a stall, and a bathroom attendant stopped me by shouting, ''Hey, mami! There''s no toilet paper here,'' and she whipped out a big roll for me to grab some," Ballone added.
Boardwalk merchants believe the bathrooms should be in better shape considering the merchants agreed to pay the city fees this summer to keep them open longer, the article noted.
