Illegal massage parlors have become so commonplace that many residents are beginning to accept them as part of the neighborhood. I say they need to go! I commend the clarkstown police, the building dept & the the DA for closing these places down. Prostitution is in fact illegal. If these places were allowed to stay open then why not stores where a person can buy drugs or illegal guns? The worst thing about these parlors is that they often open up in residential strip malls right next to the pizza & ice cream parlors where kids hang out. It's a disgrace to our community. Please report known places of prostitution & urge Gromack to shut them down.
