Workers at hotels in Brooklyn and Queens were nabbed on Thursday for funneling johns to prostitutes who stayed there, law enforcement sources said.
Local and federal authorities descended on the 39 Hotel on 39th St. in Sunset Park and arrested two women at 3 p.m., police said. Both workers were charged with promoting prostitution, according to the sources.
Three transgender men — believed to be prostitutes — were also arrested on outstanding warrants, police sources said.
The raid coincided with a bust at the Farrington Hotel in Flushing — which is under the same ownership, sources said. One arrest was made in that case.
