Page Six runs an item today regarding Self magazine's Self Center, a temporary spa on Morton celebrating Self's 25th anniversary. Area residents have complained that the spa is too loud for the quiet neighborhood, but publisher Kimberly Kelleher claims there's been nothing but "warm welcomes" from the neighbors. A reader, however, says otherwise:
Self Magazine Publisher Kimberly Kelleher's quote in this morning's Post Page Six was an insane prevarication. My wife and I are "neighbors" of the Self Center on Morton Street. We did not "warmly welcome" the Self Center's weird spa clinic that featured an instructor tittering on about some new age work-out regime to a group of noisy acolytes on Tuesday morning in the Morton Street location's back yard from 6-8 AM. It's a backyard in a residential neighborhood, not the dance studio at Equinox.
There is no way that we and anyone else with an apartment on the block sided by Hudson, Morton, Seventh Ave. South and Leroy were able to get any sleep as the host prattled on to her rapt audience. Incredibly inconsiderate. To my horror at one point I think the instructor/Jim Jones impersonator promised that there would be more such sessions to come in the next month. At this point I'm trying to locate Kelleher's home phone number so I can call her with my own special "warm welcome" the next time these inconsiderate boobs materialize in the wee hours.
New Age schtick around the Village? How horrifying! Oh, wait.
