When I first moved into the neighborhood, I figured the reason the apartments were so affordable to buy (yet nice)...compared to Brooklyn/Manhattan was because there was a red light district on Roosevelt Ave.

In the interim, apartments have become no longer so affordable...but the red light district remains.

(Flushing seems to be similar according to that Post article.)

Remember about a year ago. that 'massage parlor' in our hood was shut down for prostitution??

If you research the topic online, sex trafficking is going on in every borough.

there's a huge sex trafficking pocket on the upper east side, but it's white guys selling underage white girls to white guys. in nice condos. no harm, no foul, to the neighbors.

Yes, most prostitution is online these days. Yes, online everywhere.

That's why the red light district on Roosevelt is unusual. Old fashioned, really.

In Amsterdam their red light district is famously a tourist attraction.

I'd be interested to go to these community meetings with the NYPD. Can you let us know when they are on?

 Elvin Hernandez himself could bust down the door and the DNC would still boo.

Well, went by this morning and lol there was only one guy.

I know, I know, the other two were probably just getting coffee or dealing with johns or cutting their heroin or calling Al Queda or worshiping the devil or whatever they do.

Thanks to @am315 for actually taking action. Bravo. I just couldn't image the police don't know about this. Though I do agree that there has been almost zero foot patrol recently. However, I imagine/assume/willfully misconstrue that the NYPD has decided that--in this case--a uniformed police presence is not an effective way to discover or stop illicit activity. This is definitely a Vice Squad matter and not for patrol cops.

That said, sometimes I do wish I lived in a totalitarian police state. But then I snap out of it, like, immediately.
