Red Light District Erupts in NYC with Influx of Venezuelan Prostitutes

via ABC

A surge in Venezuelan migrant women working as prostitutes has led to the emergence of a new red light district in New York City’s Corona neighborhood.

Known as the “Market of Sweethearts,” these sex workers openly solicit clients, even during the day and near schools.

New York Mayor Eric Adams acknowledges the impact of the migrant crisis and illegal activities, emphasizing the need to address the underlying issues that force individuals into such work.

Adams plans to focus on prosecuting patrons while providing aid to the women involved.

“Roosevelt Avenue in the Corona neighborhood of Queens is filled with Venezuelan migrants offering sex services in the open-air, so-called ‘Market of Sweethearts,” reported the Daily Mail.

“This is what happens when you create an atmosphere that people can’t provide for themselves and have to turn to illegal activities to do so,” Adams said.

“When I talk about the spiraling impact of how this is going to affect our city, this is what I’m talking about. We are going to create generational problems based on the failure of the national government and that is one example.”

“This is where idealism collides with realism… I’ve had elected officials tell me that the women are just trying work – ‘why are you trying to harm them?’ – [but] there are real issues around illegal sex work, from STDs to sex trafficking girls to violence,” he said.

He also criticizes far-left activists pushing for the legalization of prostitution, highlighting the associated risks of STDs, sex trafficking, and violence.

Adams previously warned that the migrant crisis would have long-lasting consequences for the city, including financial strain and community-wide impacts.

“Let me tell you something New Yorkers: Never in my life have I had a problem that I did not see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this. I don’t see an ending to this. This issue will destroy New York City, destroy New York City. We’re getting 10,000 migrants a month,” Adams said.

“And everyone is saying, ‘It’s New York City’s problem.’ Every community in this city is going to be impacted. We have a $12 billion deficit that we’re going to have to cut every service in this city is going to be impacted. All of us,” he added.
