Inside a ‘brothel’ used in an alleged NYPD prostitution ring

This is one of the brothels where hookers allegedly turned tricks for a prostitution ring run by NYPD cops.

The unkempt room in the unit in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, is furnished only with a single box spring mattress and a bedside table filled with packets of disinfectant wipes, bottles of rubbing alcohol and a turquoise bra — matching a pair of turquoise panties lying on the stained carpet.

To set the mood, the room sports a red ceiling light and a picture of a man and a woman having dinner while overlooking the ocean.

Cops raided the apartment at 880 Gates Ave. Wednesday following the arrest of alleged ringleader ex-Detective Ludwig Paz and seven active-duty officers.

Two ladies and one man were inside the unit at the time, according to the building’s super.

“When they came in they put everyone against the wall including me. I said what is going on? They said, ‘It’s a prostitute raid!’” said William Burgess, 72, who’s been the super there since 1980.

He wasn’t surprised to learn it was an apartment of ill repute.

“I saw a lot of gentleman always coming in and out of here,” said Burgess.

“I see people coming in and out of the building — the noise at night always bothered me: bam, bam, bam. People have freedom here. As long as there is no violence or piss in my hallway, I don’t care what you do.”
