A Jackson Heights beauty salon was shut down at the end of last month for prostitution.
Oshi’s Spa Zone, located at 37-40 75th Street, was closed by court order for prostitution and providing unlicensed massages.
A spokesperson for the Queens District Attorney’s office was unable to provide any further information.
The spa, which offered a host of services—such as waxing, threading, nails and hair dressing– also offered massages body scrubs.
The spa advertised its massages and scrubs in various publications including backpage.
Many residents questioned what was taking place on site.
For instance, One Yelp reviewer wrote:
“They have so many things in one place. But to me it seems like people come here for massages…. Mostly men, a lot of the traffic comes in the evening especially after 8,9 pm. That just seemed so shady to me. There’s at least 7-10 women that just wait around for customers to come around.”
