As reported by the Daily News:

Churches and strip clubs usually don’t go together — let alone share a space.

So local leaders were less than thrilled to see a billboard for Roadhouse NYC go up above the New Hope Baptist Church on busy Northern Blvd. in Corona.

But following a Daily News inquiry, the billboard is expected to come down on Thursday. “We had no idea it was above a church,” said a Roadhouse manager, who only identified himself as Adam. “We’re definitely very sorry.”

The upscale gentleman’s club opened on Aug. 20 in Flushing and this was its first — and only — billboard. He said that no one had called the club to complain about it.

A rep from the topless establishment’s advertising firm confirmed that the club — and the company — was unaware that the billboard sat over the storefront church and a neighboring grocery store on the congested thoroughfare.
