Hands down, churches have the best bathrooms—spotless, welcoming, and usually adorned with fake flowers and wildlife. The two-room affair at Bibleway Temple on New York and New Jersey Avenues NW is an excellent example of the breed, with plastic vines hanging from the ceiling, and delicate pink finishes. There’s even a plastic couch and side table topped with a bible for your waiting pleasure—if you’re going to provide toilet reading, might as well be Jesus.
