Furor over LIC strip club

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.

No problem having city council move stip clubs before the development - the Walter McCaffry entertainment district we called it - now the developers are here Van Bramer is all over them.

Van Barmer only cares about development.

Lets see him show up where people are being displaced by the developers.
