The bloodbath that is upper Orchard Street claimed another victim, a boutique who was itself a replacement for the Best Qi Gong massage parlor (now across the street). MissInna arrived here at 190 Orchard in September 2011, and is now calling it quits fifteen months after first opening.

The problem in this corner of the Lower East Side will only worsen with the eventual advent of FOUR new hotels between Houston and Delancey. Bloodbath, indeed.
