Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

There are less than two weeks left of holiday shopping season, which means things are about to get a little hectic. To help make your life easier while you're out and about, we've compiled a list of some of the best restrooms in Manhattan's high-traffic shopping areas. We only listed bathrooms located inside a store, meaning no hotel or restaurant loos have been included. That said, if you're in or around Herald Square, might we recommend the restrooms at the Ace Hotel?

The following list was sourced from friends, retail experts, personal experience, Racked readers, and the invaluable Soho bathroom map constructed by Textbook blogger John Jannuzzi last spring. We know our round-up is by no means comprehensive, so if you've got additions, please leave them in the comments section or email them to tips@racked.com.
