A police sting has resulted in the arrests of six men at two Queens subway-station bathrooms known as notorious trysting spots for men.
The six were busted over a 90-minute period Tuesday afternoon in the bathrooms of the 71st-Continental Avenue station in Forest Hills and the Union Turnpike station in Kew Gardens. They were charged with public lewdness, the sources said.
The arrests followed the May 27 arrest of NYPD Transit Bureau Capt. Jeffrey Klimas, 51, for allegedly exposing himself to a young man on the platform of the Union Turnpike station.
But the police sources said the sting was not connected to Klimas' arrest. "They're notorious. They've been historically active bathrooms for that kind of stuff," said one police source.
Cops made the six arrests after hiding in bathroom closets.
At Union Turnpike, a transit employee said cops conducted another sting four weeks ago.
"Every 20 minutes to half-hour, police would leave the bathroom with a bunch of guys," he said.
