Chinese Massage – Doomed
Unhappy Ending – Chinese Massage gone in Hoboken
The relatively dumpy-looking Chinese Massage place at 636 Washington is doomed and now for rent. The empty spaces seem to be racking up here in Hoboken as of late.
Perhaps Asian Massage Parlors should be added to the list of economic indicators they yap about on the “news.” Because when guys start lopping things like this off their list of discretionary spending, we got a serious problem!
But in all seriousness – this is another one of those situations where the street-level appeal plays a significant role in a businesses success. Just the way Copper Kettles wasn’t allowed to modify their storefront for “historical preservation” purposes, this place is similar – with those horrible window displays and homeless-attracting alcoves.
Another stress relief parlor in town
This is definitely a growing trend in Hoboken! Taking the place of the previous Bridge Boutique / About a Girl location at 636 Washington Street is “Chinese Special Touch” massage. Mind you, the guys that told me the name said they weren’t the owners, just workers – so the actual name might have been lost in translation.
Description: The sign simply says “Back rubs” and “Foot Rubs”
