Many Queens neighborhoods share an uneasy relationhip with their strip clubs, and one battle in Rosedale has bubbled to the surface. Rockaway Boulevard's Platinum Club has a big billboard that can only be described as "titillating," and an ongoing nuisance lawsuit filed by residents hasn't convinced the club to take it down. So the community is now going after the club's liquor license, an ingenious strategy but one not as creative as attempting to landmark the building. What's their gripe? "Some locals said the billboard is offensive and triggers embarrassing questions from curious children." Questions like, "Mommy, did she swallow balloons?" [NYDN]
