Sanders Fights 'Offensive' Rosedale Billboard

Councilman James Sanders Jr. will host an emergency meeting to organize the community for the removal of the offensive billboard which has been placed at the Platinum Club, a "Gentlemen's Club" located at 248-58 Rockaway Boulevard in Rosedale.

The emergency meeting will take place on Monday, December 1 at Congregation Knesseth Israel, The White Shul, at 728 Empire Avenue in Far Rockaway.

Rockaway Boulevard is one of the main entry and exit roads to the Rockaway and Nassau communities. Thousands of people travel this road to work daily. Additionally, many children from the community travel on this road to attend school, Sanders says. Sanders is attempting to have the owners voluntarily remove the billboard. The gentlemen's club is offensive in many obvious respects and particularly for viewing by our children."
