Criminal “Psychics” Thrive in Manhattan, Where they Target Vulnerable Women
In the Upper West Side of Manhattan, generations of so-called “psychics” continue to target vulnerable rich women, all from inside one building, and despite being cited and arrested.

This particular building is commonly used for palm and tarot readings, as well as chakra balancing and other pseudoscientific nonsense. It’s just one example of how the trade persists in the wealthy area despite the existence of the internet.

Tenants of the apartment have ripped off different women for up to $60,000. In one case, Kitty Mitchell took more than $33,000 from a woman who was just fired from her job and was recovering from a surgery.

RE: Criminal “Psychics” Thrive in Manhattan, Where they Target Vulnerable Women
This Upper West Side Psychic Parlor Specializes in Reincarnation (Its Own)

A young woman stopped a stranger on West 69th Street near Lincoln Center last year, reaching for her hand with concern. She said she saw that the passer-by was spiritually ill, and urged her to step into a nearby apartment to talk more. The signs in the apartment window read “Palm and Tarot Card Readings” and “Clairvoyant Reader.”

One didn’t need a third eye to notice that the passing woman, a 42-year-old corporate recruiter recovering from major surgery who had just been fired from her job, was going through a tough time. She had been crying minutes before the psychic, Kitty Mitchell, 25, stopped her.

The psychic shop had been there for at least 10 years, a fixture on a block of prime real estate on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It had thrived even amid neighbors’ complaints and surprise visits from New York City inspectors who issued violations.

The tenants in the apartment had a history of evading city restrictions on home-operated businesses by finding loopholes in the rules, offering a case study into how psychics continue to thrive in modern-day New York. For years, the apartment has been a revolving door for psychics who promise a $5 or $10 peek at the future, a cottage industry that has proved to be recession-proof and common-sense-proof.
