Politician protests West Farms strip club
THE BRONX - A West Farms strip club is drawing protest from a recently elected Bronx politician.
Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda (D-The Bronx) wants to see Divas Gentleman’s Lounge on East 177th Street shut down. He says the club is bad for the neighborhood and sits just below an apartment building.
"You speak to the people who get fliers in their doors of women in provocative outfits,” says Sepulveda. “You speak to the children that walk around here that have to see this nonsense. You look at the painting here, this is denigrating."
The owner of the club says that they have been there for years and they have not broken any laws.
