The CityScapes Gentlemen’s Club, located at 55-61 58th St. in Maspeth, remains shut down since a court order was placed on the building on Thursday, March 3, the 108th Precinct announced. The location’s restraining order, meaning no property could be removed from the strip club, remains in place as well.

The court order was issued with assistance from the NYPD Legal Bureau.

The club made headlines last December when New York Knicks player Cleanthony Early was robbed and shot in the knee on Dec. 30 after leaving the club.

The following day, CityScapes was hit with two Molotov cocktails that flew through the front window and sparked a fire inside the establishment.

Following these two, unrelated violent incidents, the NYPD began monitoring the location. Police even suspected drug deals were taking place at the strip joint, leading them to shut it down.

According to police, the owners of the club will have to go to court, where a judge will hand down a punishment.
