X-rated billboard still an issue

Via 1010WINS:

Suit: Risque Queens Sign Annoys LI Neighbors

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) -- They may be taking off the gloves, and much more, before this battle is over.

Officials on Long Island have filed a lawsuit claiming risque billboards advertising a strip club in neighboring New York City are a public nuisance and should be removed.

Nassau County Attorney Lorna Goodman says although the Platinum Club is technically in Queens, it can be seen from her side of the border and is offensive to local residents.

One billboard features a scantily clad woman wearing several thin strips of strategically placed black material.

New York City officials don't necessarily disagree. Its Department of Buildings issued a summons in November for erecting signage without a permit.


Hey, while we're at it, can we remove the 2 port-a-potty billboards and the one with the woman talking about "giving head" along the L.I.E. in L.I.C., being that they're all illegal? Thanks.

There are a lot of vacant billboards along the bqe & lie here in Laurel hill and woodside because of the recession. I think that a strip-club one is gone in Laurel hill by the cranes now.

There is a Larry Flint billboard on a building which is viewed by LIE commuters going west - next to the old gas tanks site in Maspeth/Elmhurst - can't this be banned from our neighborhoods?

Aw shit...
big cats (lions, tigers
AND MOSTLY DEVELOPERS) are dangerous but a little "pussy" never hurt anyone!

Go after those over-builders that destroy communities with equal zeal
you hypocrites!

Could you be more vulgar? These billboards have no place out in public view where ANYONE can see them. Try explaining that to a busload of kids on our way to a trip. It may not bother YOU but there are people in this city who don't appreciate this smut.

I'm fairly sure those 3 billboards you site along the LIE are more than 200 ft off the edge, 200 ft isn't a long way

200 feet means about a block away if you take your typical back to back lots in Queens at 100ft deep. So no, they ain't.

I'm with you "Italian girl".

If a club is X-RATED
their ads should be also!

Kids eyes aren't meant to see what goes on inside adult bars.

So why should they be allowed to
view these teaser ads in a public venue? !!!

You are obviously male. Tell that to the 13 year old girls being forced into prostitution. That's the kind of result your mind-set produces.

Absolutely. Just saw the movie "Taken". The whole human trafficking thing is so disturbing I literally have nightmares about it. I can't believe how the governments of some of these countries(including ours, I'll bet) look the other way while these girls(and boys in some cases) lives are ruined. All so some pigs get can rich. And how these despicable guys can pay for sex knowing these young girls are probably being forced to do this, is beyond me.

If developers are blight then billboards of any kind but especialy the Larry Flint kind is also blight. It's our neighborhood and personally blue sky without blaring spotlight is unoffensive.

Didn't I catch you hiding behind a column in a male strip joint

in on the stage #8?
