An undisclosed bathroom at SUNY Purchase College hides a secret tribute to an American actor, Danny DeVito. The college, located about 30 miles north of Midtown, Manhattan, often finds itself in the shadows of New York City. But not lately. The secret Danny DeVito shrine has captured the attention of the Internet and gone viral.
How To Get To The Danny DeVito Shrine
To access the shrine, you just need to remove a paper towel dispenser from the wall. The hole leads to a secret room with graffiti on the walls and a small shrine to Danny DeVito.

The shine has a bizarre collection of offerings including an iTunes gift card, beer can, bag of Halls cough drops, Pop Rocks, and a rubber glove among other items. A handwritten card next to a mini cutout of DeVito says instructs parishioners to “Leave An Offering for Our Lord and Savior Danny DeVito, Patron Saint of Trash Men.”

Who Created The Shrine?
It’s unclear who originally created the secret Danny DeVito bathroom shrine. But one thing is for sure, it’s not a secret anymore. The only thing that could make this story any better is if the SUNY Purchase College Alumni created the shrine. Perhaps as a marketing stunt to lure DeVito to the school as a graduation speaker.

UPDATE: Sad news. The administrators at SUNY Purchase College have sealed up the Danny DeVito bathroom shrine.
