Going to High School on the LES is Awesome

A couple years back, when Pace University opened up a high school in the M.S. 131 building on Hester Street, the Villager wrote, "Pace University and the New York City Education Department have teamed up to give area students a jumpstart on college." And how! Following up the Arris Lofts' Whoregate scandal, the Post reports that a brothel operating out of a ping-pong parlor at 39 Eldridge Street (right) was luring Pace students into its confines with this totally amazing recruitment strategy:

The men would try to lure students to the Robo-Pong Training Center by distributing business cards outside the school, sources said. The cards were printed only with a contact number, an image of a topless woman - and a word, "Good."And to hammer home the "we want to get students laid for only $35 each" message, the brothel's hours were printed on a sign adorned with rulers and pencils and the words "School Days." And that is why going to high school on the LES is awesome.
