The neighbors complained about what happened there

The surprise operation at a massage parlor at Roosevelt Avenue and 95th Street, which authorities say was operating as a brothel, involved NYPD police officers and city mayor Eric Adams.

It was Adams who put the closing seal, as well as area councilor Francisco Moya.

“The whole community called my office to protest what they saw here,” Moya said.

“It takes away the quality of life. When I have teachers calling us from schools saying that 50 meters from the entrance of one of the schools they see prostitution, out there. What a message are we sending our children? “What message are we sending to the community?” in addition to the councilor.

After being confirmed through surveillance in the early morning, the police got a court order to enter those salons, because they already have all the evidence that these places that are closed as massage parlors, are really houses.

Benjamín García, from the Guardian Angels, who patrols this area, says that this illegal activity affects the community.

“This is a community of people who are honorable, respected, very good people, workers and these kinds of things that they have here. They can’t get it anywhere else. Nothing, Nothing,” said García .

In the operation to close 6 clandestine establishments, no women or transsexual people were arrested, as NYPD Assistant Commissioner Kaz Daughtry pointed out that they were victims of sexually exploiting them. The owners of the area were also not arrested. But the authorities assured that they will continue to close down such illegal businesses, and they will send undercover police to investigate illegal activities,

Lisandro Chabla lives next door to one of the massage parlors that was closed on Thursday.

“When I come from work, like taking my key to open the door, because they know I’m coming and then they say, ‘Let him come’, ‘come’. And with a smile and then no , that’s not it. good “I say for the children and for the people who pass through here,” said Chabla.

The authorities have indicated that the aim is to help victims of sexual exploitation with all the help they need so that they do not dedicate themselves to this activity.

The mayor and other authorities expressed that they will not allow this type of illegal business to destroy the quality of life of the residents of this area,
