An advertisement for a Manhattan gentlemen's club was replaced with a sign for the Nintendo X-Box.

THE BRONX - A controversial strip club billboard has been stripped down near Yankee Stadium.

An advertisement for the Manhattan gentlemen's club Scores caused an uproar in the community when it went up on East 161st Street and Walton Avenue last month.

Community Board 4 put up a sign for Microsoft's X-Box video game console in its place.

Most residents in the area say they're happy with the billboard change, but others said they considered it to be just business.
