Body by Brooklyn - at Manhattan prices
A new business, Body by Brooklyn, in the Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill area has come to our attention. It is a full-service day spa located at the very unlikely location of 275 Park Avenue, underneath the BQE. If we recall correctly, this is the building known as the Chocolate Factory Lofts and which also houses the Mojito Cuban restaurant.
Judging from the website, there is a full complement of services, including steam rooms.
The one issue that we have, and we would guess, that most other people who would fit their demographic would have, is that their prices are prohibitively expensive for this area. We compared some services to Bliss Spa in Soho and the BBB prices are more expensive. We officially deem that this place will not last long with such prices. But then again, perhaps their rent at 275 Park Avenue is very cheap. That only means that the owners are looking to line their pockets.
Case in point: BBB 60 minute foot reflexology for $100. At Bliss - a bargain at $90. BBB manicure for $30. At Bliss - $23. I'm sorry, but a business located underneath the BQE in fringe Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill should not be more expensive than a luxury spa located in Soho.
Stick a fork in BBB; unless this business is not open yet and prices are for illustrative purposes only.
