City Councilman James Sanders Jr. (right), who represents Far Rockaway, and Nassau County Assemblyman Jeff Toback got together on Rockaway Turnpike in Lawrence on a snowy Tuesday to announce a public nuisance complaint over what they term a "Nudity Billboard" atop the Platinum Club, a "gentlemen's club" that features topless dancers. A number of Rockaway residents, particularly those in the Orthodox Jewish Far Rockaway community, have complained that the large billboard, which can be seen in the background of this photograph, offends their cultural and religious sensibilities. "We are going to send a clear message to the owners that their billboard is not welcome here," Sanders said. "If they don't remove it voluntarily, we will insure that their business will be hurt." 024p1_xlg.jpg
