Massage parlors proliferating everywhere


From WPIX:

On a rainy Monday approaching midnight, PIX11 Investigates took a drive along Northern Boulevard in Little Neck, Queens, heading east toward the Great Neck border. We noticed blinking, neon lights in two storefronts standing side by side. One of them was called “Relax Station,” and the blue and white sign indicated it was open. The next store had a red awning; the sign advertising $19.99 rubs for 30 minutes.

These are the spas of Little Neck and Douglaston in eastern Queens, and in the last couple of years, the name FOOT SPA has appeared increasingly on the signs.

PIX11 took note of the trend in our travels and decided to look into the phenomenon.

Go down 164th street by Depot Rd. You have a barber shop that you can't see in and is never open during the day. A "Church" that never has worshipers and two "gentlemen" clubs. Fun times walking at night home from the LIRR.

What a joke. Look at all the pictures of the very attractive girls in the advertising and compare that to the "perp-walk" footage of the overweight middle aged women who were actually arrested.

You missed the new one on 164th Street....half a block from the Broadway LIRR station. I believe the name is "Golden Shore Spa".
On the same block is "OB's Cavem" (karaoke room bar)...two more clubs with basement quarters....another massage parlor on Depot Road.
That's a pretty high concentration of places to "relax" within one square block of each other.
A former "barber shop"....with darkened windiows, which you had to be buzzed in to enter) was closed down by the authorities because it was a bordello. Hmmmm....where is the 109th pct....getting paid off to look the other way? Where is the vice squad, IRS for unreported income seizure?

That's a drop in the bucket. Try downtown Flushing.
"Massagee, massagee, massagee" ,is the cry on practically every street corner.
Once, on the way to Sky View Mall at night, an Asian woman darted out of a doorway on Roosevelt Ave.
and was soliciting me for a "massage". Where are our health inspectors?
Virulent TB, and other exotic antibiotic resistant diseases are on the rise.

They should take a walk or ride around the Broadway-Flushing LIRR stop, especially 164th street. At night it's hooker and pimp heaven.

Nail salons and massage parlors. There is a lot of unreported income going on not to mention unsanitary conditions.
Then there is the indentured servitude issue. That's where a lot of human traffickers dump their people to work off their sea passage.
This has suddenly become big news? It has been going on since the 1980s.

At the time that Julia Harrison was a council member , it was documented that there were at least 40 whore houses operating within the 109th pct's area. They flourished for years. Years later it was discovered that a pair of cops were protecting one particular madam. They go paid and laid for their services. NYPD officers actually strong armed her competition. Where there are massage parlors and whores there are crooked cops looking the other way for favors. The oldest profession has the second oldest profession to protect it.
Mop up the 109th and you will have a cleaner Flushing. PS...whenever you suspect a bordello operating, DO NOT call your local precinct.
They are probably in on the racket. Call Queens vice or the Feds.

Of course 99.9% are Asian. In this area they're mostly Korean.

24 hour massage joint!? "Hi, just dropping in for a random non-sexual 1 A.M. 30 minute massage" Ahahaha!

Corner tudor house on 159th and 35th Avenue was on the news about 5 years ago because the Asian owners were keeping women in the basement and pimping them out to massage parlors during the day. Wife recently got out of jail where she served a few years. Husband got nothing at all. She took full responsibility. Strange people are still going into and out of that house and all its entrances at all hours of the night.

There is a newish "Foot Massage" place directly across the street from St. Andrew's Church on Northern between 158th and 157th street. Same block as the chicken place and the hair salon and BBQ Village.

Does Queens Vice actually help? Are there any contact people there who are helpful?

Anonymous said...

It's their cultural heritage, right? Now that Duhblazio is shutting down the nail salons, expect to see tons more of these popping up. What else is left for all these semi-legal(?) asian women to do--become biochemists or nuclear engineers?

Is that why Paulie V. spends so much time at St. Andrew's? Or does he just like the chicken?

These whore stores rub me the wrong way!

Just a little inside information for the people who want to know the Truth,Yes thier everywhere and the people who run them are Partners with your local elected Representatives and the police can not interfere or harass them in anyway
The only thing that will put a stop to this is a
FEDERAL INVESTIGATION
Do you really think this is the police department doing nothing? The corruption is bigger than you think.

Just add a couple of Andrew Jacksons and get yourself a happy ending.

Massge parlors proliferate all over the borough specially where Chinese and Koreans live.
Near the 7 train station and along Northern Blvd.

And just what is Pauly Vallone intend to do about whorehouse by his kids school????

Come on Pauly you're not gonna let this slide, are you?

Many of these girls are trafficked. They need to be rescued.

Anonymous said...

Close them all down and lock up and deport the illegals that work in them. And while you're at it, post photos of the men who go to them in the papers.

If Hillarity Clinton, the boy mayor and lame duck Obama have their way on immigration we'll be seeing many more of these dens of iniquity showing up in Queens and the rest of the city.
These are places where even the most unskilled of women laborers can find, ahem, employment.
Just keep voting for the leftists and we'll probably see prostitution legalized in several years right after they legalize drugs.

I walk by the 2 "genitalmen clubs" at the Broadway LIRR every night about 2:00am.

a couple of guys come by at that time to pick-up the girls wearing mini skirts (even in the winter) and take them home.

Once there was a Korean guy on the sidewalk crying and beating up one of the girls in front of OB's cavern because she was his girlfriend and he just found out she was working there giving out happy endings! Myself and one other guy who just got off the Train had to pull him off of her. We called the police, but they never showed up. That was over 3 years ago.

Yep the asian whores are coming to a neighborhood near you!

They are sex traffickers! !

When Koch was mayor, he had a program to publicly identify the johns who solicit prostitutes. Why was the program shut down? who was responsible?

A three year response time for the 109th precinct? That's about normal.

Anonymous said...

Shoulda called the 110.They'd be on it in a sec...TICKETS FOR EVERYBODY!!!(Probably even the one reporting!)That's pretty much all thar dsmn precinct is-- a ticket writing machine.

There's a lookout for OB's Cavem sitting across the street near the Boadway station entrance in the summer months. Black limos pick up scantily clothed Asia dolls and deliver them like pizza to awaiting customers. Take a late night walk on the weekends. You'll see more than you expected in this...ahem..."quiet" nabe.
What happened after that multi dept task force raid years ago which netted whores, pimps and closed a few of these whore house. Not much. It's back to business as usual. Maybe some cops and DA's office workers stop in for a midnight rub on the way home to wifey and the kids, who probably go to St. Andrews.. Hey, Mrs. Dorsa and Paul Vallone. How come St. Andrews is not mounting a morality campaign to stop all the local whoring? Hmmmm...maybe some of its priests are customers. Ya nevah know these days.

Anonymous said...

Dorsa and Vallone are too busy with financial matters at St. Andrews. Hmmmmm!

LOL! I can just see ol' chrome dome Vallone getting his head rubbed by some Asian 20 year old.

I've seen an off duty cop that I know lives in the neighborhood visit one of these parlors.
What was he doing there at 9:00 PM?

Anonymous said...

He might have been undercover.

More likely between the sheets....maybe as payment in kind?

I hope some law enforcement types are reading about all this. We got your numbers.
I'm calling the Feds!

You should see WTF is going on south of Northern Blvd. on 162nd Street!
One Korean "club" after another doing a brisk business after hours. Some gangster types
dressed to the nines stepping out of limousines being greeted at the door by a consierege
Coming for their share of the evening's take or for a quick tune up from the little dollies?
This is ALL unreported income. IRS needs to be notified!
Hey, call Vito at Paulie Vallone's office. Scrap that idea if you want to feel safe. He will rat you out to whoever is protecting these businesses.
They probably contribute to the Vallone campaign.

Everybody is always talking about encouraging Queens tourism.
Flushing has to be identified as the best cheapest place to get a blow job in NYC.
Sex tourism. That's the ticket to putting us on the map.
We could wind up beating out Bangkok as a prime destination.

I posted this here YEARS ago. Those and the whorehouse on northern & 249th next to the "adult shop" have been operating close to 10 years but now under DeBlasio and an over run PD they have bigger balls to put up signs and blinking lights. Word is a lot of cops go their so they wont be leaving.

Im not sure but I'm told "erotic massage" is legal and medicinal to relieve congestion. You just cant ask for sex. No ?

Anonymous said...

Prostate massage is for medicinal relief. Is a finger up the ass covered by Medicaid? That's how the Prostate gets massaged. Sorry to be so graphic. The Chinese have the weirdest remedies. Try their strange snake tonics.

I think you just can't discuss prices. But if someone gives you a little extra "job" and you leave her a tip, with no discussion of money...

There was one of these massage businesses a few years ago near the Douglaston LIRR train station. The girls were driven in the morning to the parking lot in back of the building. Then in the evening they were picked up after their day's work. Finally, they were closed down.

Presumably, this practice has become more widespread. There are a lot of people making a "tax-free" living from the massage businesses in the Boroughs. The Asian and Korean groups and churches should try to educate the girls.

"Many of these girls are trafficked. They need to be rescued." Mostly not true. And how to rescue them? Deport them?

At dusk a few days ago, I noticed a young Korean girl delivered to one of those clubs on 162nd Street off of Crocheron.
She could barely walk in her high heel shoes. She almost fell down twice. Or maybe she was drugged by her employers or high on something on her own. It's as if this poor little FOB (fresh off boat) painted up porcelain doll novice was just assigned to her new job with no previous experience with walking in dress shoes. And oh what a dress she was wearing. Practically none. Six inches below her ass. Yummy Asian delicacy for an older Asian gentleman, no doubt. Where are our law enforcement people? Where is our councilman Vallone? They are partners in the problem. The cops must be getting paid off, for sure. Maybe Vallone has got a homely looking wife and needs some respite from her, so he drops in for a pick me up. Do Korean girls favor bald headed men? I wonder.

Anonymous said...

Yep...Korean churches, clubs and massage joints. These are the biggest tax evading rackets ever to invade northeast Queens.
All the way out to Port Washington , in fact, following the LIRR. That's where the high rollers live who can afford a tumble in the hay with a Korean delight.

Years ago in Broadway Flushing....Northern Blvd. near the old Quartet theater....was a high end lingere shop rarely seen with customers.
Somebody who knew the score told me that a man and woman walks in and he buys her a hundred dollar pair of panties, an eighty dollar bra, whatever. That is the way payment is made for her services . They leave together and do whatever somewhere. Then she goes and returns her expensive intimate wear for a cash refund. The store was a front for a sex service operation. It closed, or was closed.
There are other fronts that have opened up since and are growing.
