Colonial Laundromat/Original Italian Pizza (Downtown Syracuse)

489 James St., Syracuse, NY 13203
Grade: C-

First of all, let me say that it is nice that this laundromat has a restroom in the first place. A surprising amount of laundromats I have frequented do not have restrooms, which is quite the inconvenience when you are waiting for your laundry for several hours. Granted, this laundromat is attached to an Original Italian Pizza (as are many Colonial Laundromats in CNY). Still, I appreciate it.

That said, this is a fairly run-of-the-mill unisex public restroom. There is a single toilet and the door locks. The sink does provide good water temperature control and pressure, and the soap is of the foam variety. The facilities do give off the impression of being cleaned fairly frequently, but still feel somewhat rundown (see photo of the cracked door-mounted mirror below, as well as the battered toilet paper dispenser).

There is an automated "Xlerator" hand dryer, which I always love. Also, for some reason the door is for some reason about 1.5 times the width of a standard door, though the image below doesn't really do this justice.
