Wigs, Soap -- and Sex Toys -- in Brooklyn Heights

When the word spread that a "chic new Ricky’s NYC" was moving into the site of the former Tapestry Day Spa at 107 Montague Street, there was a flurry of excitement, reports the Brooklyn Eagle.

Ricky's is a "funky beauty emporium" loaded with makeup, hair dye, temporary tattoos, "fabulously fake" wigs, etc. “I love Ricky’s!” one Boerum Hill resident told the Eagle. “It’s fun and funky and I shopped at it all the time when I worked in SoHo."

But then, there’s that back room. The one with the chocolate penises, vibrators and other sex toys, along with a month-long October celebration featuring trashy Halloween costumes.

Needless to say, Ricky's may not be what the Brooklyn Heights Association had in mind when it called for a more "vibrant" Montague Street ...

The whole story is here.

I for one am very very happy that Rickys is coming to the Heights. It's about time we make this neighborhood a little more colorful!
