Strip club ad offends border dwellers

Saying it is too risque for their neighborhood, concerned residents are outraged over a large advertisement for a strip club on the border of Queens and Nassau County.

In the hopes of coming up with a plan to do something about the Platinum Club's sign, New York City Council member James J. Sanders (D-Queens) and Nassau Legis. Jeff Toback (D-Oceanside) Monday night addressed an audience of about 200 at Congregation Kneseth Israel in Far Rockaway.

Many objected to the sign itself, which features a nubile woman barely clothed in straps of black.

It's probably right by the airport, what do they expect?

There is a big billboard on the right as you come out of the QM tunnel that has a slut lying on her back partially undressed with her finger near her mouth, that says "We Give Great Head." It's for beer! WTF?

The sign is vulgar and should come down. Period.

This is funny... like the Springfield bordello.

I object to its use of the word gentleman- real gentlemen wouldn't go to strip clubs!

Absolutely!

To the guys out there who love these joints: get a life and try spending some cash on some girls who actually give a sh*# about you, even if it is only your mom.

Indeed. We go to a cabaret, not a strip club!

So what? Just because they live near an airport doesn't mean that they have to see a sign like that. They're right to protest.

Is there a larger picture of the billboard?

I'm not saying they can't protest, they can do whatever they like. It was a half-assed attempt at humor

Yeah, I agree...here in FL we have a really nasty one...can't get rid of. People argue that I should be OK with my kids seeing it, let their kids see it! Maybe I care about my kids! So....here it is you decide.
