Controversial strip club opens its doors in New Rochelle

A strip club that has been stirring up controversy in New Rochelle officially opened its doors Thursday.

Casanova Gold is billed as an upscale gentlemen?s club. However, local churches and community groups do not want the club in downtown New Rochelle. The club is located across the street from New Roc City, a family entertainment complex. The club?s owner believes Casanova Gold will enhance the area?s economy.

City officials say the area is not zoned for topless dancing. However, the club?s owner is fighting that point in federal court. A decision is expected by the end of the month.Related storyResidents protest strip club opening in New Rochelle
