That was my point - I now know absolutely nothing, except that I refuse to believe that tehy don't exist. It's just not possible ( in my mind ). Hey, aside from Episodes, we don't hear anything about the quickie houses ( and I will give odds that there are at least 20 opperating in teh 5 boros ). I have been on a lifelong crusade to find an Asian quickie place in C-town ( and I've been led to believe that they do exist ) with no success whatsoever. A number of years ago, I had been taken to about 5 or 6 of the places you ask about ( mostly in "private houses" throughout the Bronx ), but now, zilch.
