Town Takes New Measures Against LI Strip Club
The struggle between a West Babylon town and a a strip club that refuses to close its doors has escalated once again.

A Babylon official tacked a brightly colored "unlawful Building Structure" notice on the Long Island Cafe's front door, making it a Class A misdemeanor for people to enter, punishable by up to a year in prison.

The battle between the community and the club's owner dates back to a ruling by a federal judge who ordered the establishment to be shuttered before November 2009. However, almost a year later the club was still open.

West Babylon officials went back to the judge who had signed the order of closure and complained.

Residents had reported loud and drunken patrons in the parking lot, and have long protested the existence of an adult-oriented business in their community. However, the owner claims he hasn't closed his club because he feels he is being unfairly targeted, and that the owners of similar local establishments are being left alone.
