$230, if this report from the NY Post today is to be believed. The Post’s Brad Hamilton went undercover at a suss new “massage parlor” on tony Smith Street in Cobble Hill. He confirmed it was “a bordello barely masquerading as a massage spa,” with several online sex-seeking ads that also pointed to the location. Hamilton paid $50 for an hour-long massage, and then $180 for the, uh, bonus service that involved nudity, breast touching and a condom. At least it’s not another bank?
The Post’s story also claims that “such brothels purportedly now outnumber Starbucks in New York,” which seems wild, but if they can afford rent on Smith Street, maybe business is indeed booming.
