NYPD continues its crackdown on seedy retailers on the Lower East Side.
The Post reports that a purported ping-pong parlor, the so-called Robo-Pong Training Center, located at 39 Eldridge Street, was actually just a “front for a whorehouse,” whose target market apparently consisted of horndog teenagers from nearby Pace High School.
A really cheap whorehouse, it turns out — with prices ranging from just $35 to $60 a pop.
“It was obvious that they were targeting young students, because the prices were so low,” said one disgusted police official, adding, “Most brothels charge at least $100.”
Given the cut rates, we wonder: How did Robo-Pong ever manage to cover its rent?
