Luis Acosta of Kew Gardens is now the Condom King of New York. 15,000 people voted in the Health Department's contest to design a special limited-edition NYC Condom wrapper, and the winner is Acosta's electronic power button. But it was a hard-fought victory, with Acosta's rubber winning by just two percentage points with 23% of the vote. In second place, with 21% of vote, was the Top Hat, followed by the Circle of Condoms and the Manhole Cover. Fittingly, the design of a subway train in a tunnel finished dead last. (Sadly, our Sad Rat condom design didn't even place.) In a statement, a triumphant Acosta said, "I hope my package design reminds people that they’re in control."
