A Greenpoint Blind Item: Vice

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

Since we have already established that the local YMCA is the place to indulge one’s taste for illicit substances I thought it only appropriate that I close out today’s offerings with this tantalizing bit of goodness from the Greenpoint grapevine.

Which Greenpoint restaurant is reputed to serve breast and thighs of a very human variety in its basement?

Yes, I am talking about an illegal “massage parlor”.* I have heard a lot of buzz about this establishment from a number of different people. Having seen the activity around this place with my own two eyes I have a very difficult time dismissing it as mere rumor.

*Which by the way, if true, would NOT be Greenpoint’s first one. There was another. Anyone care to guess where it was?

  4. Sorry, i just realized you wrote “restaurant”.

    I am even more intrigued…

    Divine Follie might be fitting..

    Oh, wait.. “Happy End”???

  6. I’d guess either Happy End, because of the name, or that Peruvian chicken place. I’ve never eaten in Happy End, but that chicken place is awesome!!
    And if I can get a hand job with my whole roasted chicken and plantains, all the better!

  8. I swear to you when I read “Which Greenpoint restaurant is reputed to serve breast and thighs of a very human variety in its basement?” my first thought was CANNIBALS?

    Perhaps I watch too much Law and Order.

  12. Um, I don’t know why but I get a really whore-y vibe from Red Star on West and Greenpoint. Who knows but…

  14. Two things: I’ve heard the rumors but since I don’t know that their true I’m not naming the place here.

    And… that Red Star comment is hilarious. I have my reasons.

  16. I’ve been thinking about this for nearly 24 hours and I can’t come up with a single restaurant where I’ve gotten the vibe that I might be able to get just a bit more than dinner. Of course, if it’s on the Southern end of Greenpoint, there’s a good chance I haven’t eaten there.

    How about a little hint?

  20. I come from a hinterland place where the grimey neighborhood fixture was called “Mittendorns”, a sundries and market with rotten meat and freezer burned ice cream. The proprietor and his son were mute amputees from Vietnam and the Gulf War, respectively, and it was discovered, after I was long gone, that Mr. Mittendorn had been selling his pre-teen daughters in the basement.

    I need to know where this place is – I always want the same thing after dessert and coffee..

  22. “How about a little hint?”

    Here’s one, assuming it’s the place I’ve heard “rumors” about: it’s visible in the above picture.

    But maybe that’s too obvious, because otherwise why would that picture be illustrating this article?
