From CBS New York:
Local politicians and community activists have mounted an effort against a proposed strip club in Long Island City.
Protesters rallied Thursday hoping to block a request by the Gypsy Rose on 21st Street for the state to renew its liquor license.
The State Liquor Authority is scheduled to hold a hearing on the license issue next Wednesday. A decision is likely to be made then.
Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer has been a staunch opponent of the adult cabaret. He sent letters to the SLA last year denouncing the club’s application.
