A Sunnyside spa located on 40th Street has been shut down for prostitution.
Sunny Spa, an Asian massage shop located 45-09 40th Street, was closed by the NYPD Thursday by order of Queens County Supreme Court. Two posters have been plastered on the location’s front gate stating that authorities had shut it down.
The NYPD nor the Queens District Attorney’s Office had any information on the closure as of this morning.
The operator of the spa, when called, said: “We are closed. Come back another time.” She hung up when asked why the spa was not open.
The spa gained attention shortly after it opened in 2011 when ads were placed online.
In one ad were pictures of young Asian women. The ad read:
We have ** BEAUTIFUL ** Asian masseuse.
And they all provides (sic) Superb Bodywork try today !
