Is it or is it not hard to believe the New York Post's recent story on the Chinatown brothels on Eldridge Street? The tabloid claims that pimps are recruiting our children! Specifically, they say fellas on the street were hitting up high school students from Pace, distributing business cards promising low, low prices for women. ($35, according to a plainclothes cop.) Stranger things have happened!
The brothel was in the back of the Robo-Pong Training Center, a ping-pong parlor at 39 Eldridge Street. Of course it was. But were the kids shocked/
"'It doesn't surprise me. There are guys handing out cards with naked girls on them all the time around here,' said Ivy Lee, a senior at Pace HS."Just another day at school!
As near as we can tell, the whole neighborhood is a hotbed of secret vice. Above, courtesy of Google, see the hot-and-heavy photos of the action on 40 Eldridge. Mrow!
