How to Stop a Strip Club: Landmarking!

New, 5 comments

The battle over a businessman's desire to open a new Long Island City strip club near the Queensboro Bride has entered the threats phase. The owner says that if he doesn't get a liquor license for his topless club, he'll open the place as an all-nude club with an 18-and-over age policy, as is his God-given right in this great country of ours. Meanwhile, a local politician says she's going to contact the Landmarks Preservation Commission and ask that it consider 42-50 21st Street and prevent the building from being altered for a nightclub. But wouldn't a landmark strip club be kind of cool? Proposed name: Historic Erection. [NYDN; previously]
