The best news of economic recovery we've heard all month: the World Trade Center area, speculates a downtown employee, is getting a whorehouse. Or maybe a bathhouse. Or, you know, a gym, maybe. We'd do some investigation, but we don't get paid enough, so why don't one of y'all newspaper people make some... what are they called? "Phone calls"?

A waitress in a WTC-adjacent building reports on the new construction:

Up on the third floor, above the restaurant, they're doing some construction. It's a bunch of small rooms with showers [Laughs]. We're not supposed to know about it, but we all do. They're building a whore house up there.


[Update: Is this the Pussycat Lounge, over on Greenwich Street? Could any johns please report?]
Up on the third floor... [Manhattan Waiter]
