Only had half an hour before my train. Took a chance and got to suck the biggest cock and balls I've ever had in my mouth. Magnificent but couldn't stay long enough to get him to cum. 11:30 on a Thursday morning and worth every minute of it.

Still a good place to find hot guys who are not hustlers. A lot of standing and looking at times but you can still get lucky. Found a cute Black guy with a huge cock the other day and wound up taking him back to the hotel. Hot times.

Staff wants you to feed machines but they're pretty nice overall.

Definitely a great option for awesome anonymous head in the city, especially during the summer: The backroom is well air-conditioned.

Also, it's the most bang for your buck (so to speak) as it's the longest amount of video play per dollar that I've found in the city.

Always lots of great cocksuckers around hungry for loads.

Since Rainbow Station closed, the Blue seems to be busier, with a wide mix of men who tend to keep it busy. The staff seem mellow enough and aren't shouting "Put Da Money!" as they bang on doors and threaten to kick you out as they do at other stores.

I find the guys here can be friendlier than at other video stores, perhaps because they are in a gayborhood and are gay themselves. I've never seen hustlers here, either, which is comforting.

It's sadly one of the lat few decent places to go in the city. There's a steady mix of guys there.

The staff can sometimes be militant about standing around and feeding the booth, but the location and the better caliber of guys who pop in make it worth it.

Video booths are all the way at the back of the store. There is a hallway with a few booths on each side, followed by a few stairs leading down to another area with about a dozen booths.

Wednesday night at 10:30 pm was pretty busy, a mix of guys (ages, races, sizes, etc.) all cruising. I went into a booth in the first area and immediately had guys on either side of me. I eventually let one of the guys suck my cock til I came.

Yes, the attendants are strict about feeding the machine if you're occupying a booth, but they didn't seem to mind guys milling about the hall cruising for as long as they wanted.

I think the attendants are quite fair. They've got a living to earn which means dollars in the machines.

Got pick pocketed as this joint almost a month ago. Tons of crooks and weird people. The attendant who is a total a-hole kicked me out of the place when I told him someone had stolen my stuff. I am sure he has something to do with it, and yes, they treat people like crap in here. This place should be avoided at all costs. I hope they lose their business and something really gay friendly opens there.

True, the people who work there are TOTAL ASSHOLES. Why bother getting harassed there when there are plenty of other, friendlier places right nearby?

The attendants here are rude as hell. They have an obvious disdain for the gay men using the place. I think they should be boycotted and forced to open under new ownership. Don't let your dick allow you to be treated like shit!

I just came from there (Sunday the 22nd) and had a great time. Within minutes I sucked two muscle dudes who both had big dicks. The place was busy and yes, there were a one or two old trolls but name one place in the city that doesn't have them. They do knock on the door for you to put money in but they don't hassle you. And I noticed that even they say 'don't stand around, get in a booth', no one moves and they don't say a word. Also, $1 gets you three and a half minutes, which is more than most places. Lots of Latino cock, white cock and black cock to choose from.

It's mostly a miss. Not too many of the Chelsea hotties go here. In fact, it's rare. It's usually Puerto Rican and African American trolls, worn out white guys, and other assorted untouchables. The videos machines are fast with your money, and managers are quick to demand that you not stand around and instead use a booth. Good-looking boys just don't go to places like this.

Visited after work and it had a decent-sized crowd; several black and Latino hustlers (a few were a bit scary) but there was other action, also. There's an admission fee and still guys are telling you to put money in the machines. At least they're not as aggressive as some other places.

Nothing special about this or the other two places in the vicinity. There is a set of middle-aged hustlers (trying to look younger) who run around from one place to the next, and that gets really tired.

Ladies, I love chocolate as much as the next dirty white boy but please wash yourself. I was chewing on a big buck black boy's smelly dick and had my fingers stuck up his sticky butthole when it occurred to me he might've at least washed. This is not an isolated incident as I've noticed other big buck black boys who could use a good scrubbing. Thank you, in advance, for washing before you step out.

It's the same local Puero Rican trolls and other Latino hustlers from West New York. They're just kind of poorly dressed, dirty, uneducated, and hustling for money or a place to sleep. Some look either sick or homeless or both.

I went there Tuesday around 4 pm. They added new booths in the hallway before stepping down into the main dark room, but oddly, none of them are buddy booths. Anyway, I wandered and hung out for the worse part of an hour with mostly trolls. However, right around 5 pm a tall, decent looking twenty-something went into the booth next to me. We stroked for a while before I got on my knees and sucked him off. Not fun to cruise so long before finding some decent action but at least it is occasionally there to be found.

The management added booths to the already small space. More booths means more trolls. Today, there has been a parade of big buck black boys ready to nut.

Waste of time. I was there last week on a Saturday night and nothing. Every fifteen minutes or so a guy would pop in then right back out. A lot of hustlers too -- they ask if you have a dollar for the machine then they want you to pay for a limp dick. Never again.

At times there are a lot of hot guys but most of the attendants are assholes. No one is allowed to stand and wait in the booth area so there is traffic between the store and it while people are waiting for a pair of adjacent booths. It's better to go across the street to Rainbow where all the booths have gloryholes on either side and the attendants are usually less aggressive.

This, my friends, is a very hot place. Lunch hour, after work, early evening, after hours, you name the time it's hot. If you want to get or give head it is there to be had. Just wait around for a few minutes and you'll find what you're looking for. The staff does their job but, believe me, there are worse people doing the same thing elsewhere in town. These guys will actually crack a smile.
And if you can't get no satisfaction here, simply cross the street (at the light, of course) and go to Rainbow Station.

Don't listen to the poster who urged everyone to boycott this place. You have to understand, the Bloomberg administration, like Giuliani before, wants to turn New York into a G-rated theme park for the tourists from Kansas. To do so, they need to close down any store connected with the sex industry. The staff is just reacting to police pressure. I've managed to get sucked off at The Blue a few times. Don't boycott the place; just be discreet, use your head (the one over your shoulders, that is), and consider moving to Europe.

This place used to be great--hot crowd and relatively pleasant employees. No more. Nasty, hostile monitors orders anyone who stands still for more than ten seconds to enter a booth or leave. They pound incessantly on the doors the second the video stops (and they seem to have adjusted the video monitors to play for an even shorter time per dollar). Skip this dive.
