Prostitution at the Capri? How shocking!

The best place to stay in Lynbrook. You can get it all at the Capri. Just remember to see a doctor to get rid of it.

on the internet i found the owner of the capri - his name is Cornel Circiumaru of Hicksville. It lists a phone number of 516 938 6694 Maybe someone should call him from the Patch and ask him to comment on the hookers at his hotel. Matt Hogan??? This information was found as public info.
the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 03:51 PM

the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 03:52 PM

the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 03:53 PM

Phil Tedesco March 07, 2013 at 06:42 PM
@Big Kahuna If you are so concerned why dont you call him
the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 06:56 PM
i did
the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 06:59 PM
but one call is not going to make a difference. Is this what you want in your town Phil??? By your children? I think if everyone would call maybe he would get the message. I only hope that no one gets hurt from the actions that are going on there.
the big kahuna March 07, 2013 at 07:02 PM
its sad that we keep reading about the arrests but nothing ever gets done to close the place. I wish I had the answer but i dont. Nothing will happen until the residents of this town stand up and fight. But it seems like no one wants to. sad.
terrific March 07, 2013 at 09:33 PM
This place should be closed. Who are we protecting? I guess the owners has something on our leaders. This place attracts criminals.
Phil Tedesco March 07, 2013 at 10:04 PM
@big kahuna and so what did he say when you called? @terrific - as long as you are willing to pay the millions it will take to close the place then go ask our leaders to close it.

Lynbrook used to be known as the Village that leads the way! Then Tree City! Now Hookerville!
Mark reyes March 08, 2013 at 11:02 AM
Unless the village took the property under emminent domain, nothing can be done because noone can be forced to close down there business. The problem with emminent domain cases is that they get tied up in court for years.
Ivan Ivanovich March 08, 2013 at 12:26 PM
Hookers have to eat too, pimpin ain't easy
the big kahuna March 08, 2013 at 02:12 PM
what do you propose?????
Frankie Tsang April 02, 2013 at 01:49 AM
Towns have to be vigilant. The criiminal element infiltrates and spreads like contagion. My home town used to be a sleepy little place. First the "victimless crimes" started...seedy massage parlors prostituting behind curtains, then the street walkers and now drugs and shootings. No crime is victimless. It affects families and children and exposes everyone to dangerous elements.
