The billboard before it was taken down.

On the heels of community complaints, a billboard promoting a local strip club has come down. The billboard sat above the New Hope Baptist Church at 105-13 Northern Boulevard.

“Common sense and decency have prevailed,” said State Senator Jose Peralta, who had called for the ad to be removed.  “Like everyone else that I spoke to who had seen the billboard, I thought that the female pictured looked far too young to be featured in an ad for a strip club.  It was a jarring image that was offensive and sickening.  That it sat above a church was an especially twisted mockery.”
