Wigs, Soap and Yep, Sex Toys Hit Brooklyn Heights

Just in time for Halloween, Ricky's N.Y.C. is open in Brooklyn Heights at 107 Montague Street. For the cosmetologically deficient, Ricky's is a "funky beauty emporium" loaded with makeup, hair dye, temporary tattoos, "fabulously fake" wigs, etc.

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

There was quite the to-do back in July when some Brooklyn Heights parents objected to the back room. So McBrooklyn decided to do its civic duty by volunteering to see if the store has protected Brooklyn Heights' youth from these disgusting items.

The Report: Upstairs, Ricky's stocks all the hair dye, brushes and funny refrigerator magnets you could want. But DOWNSTAIRS, make a left and you enter the inner sanctum. What's in there? Dildos up the wazoo, so to speak.

So, if you want to shield yourself from sleaze, DON'T MAKE A LEFT DOWNSTAIRS at Ricky's. Just S-T-O-P at the hanging beaded curtains. Your children will thank you.

Wanna check it out yourself? Party Friday night from 6 - 10 p.m. Beats by DJ Ariza Sound, special appearance by Dick Swizzle. Free.
