The Sunset Park Alliance of Neighbors held a rally and march, apparently to protest and draw attention to the liquor license application of Peyton's Playpen. CB 7 voted no, which they probably would have anyway (see second link below). Peyton's Playpen is place down on 2nd and 39th with a big sign that reads All Nude.
David Galarza, one of the most active members of SPAN, headed up the rally. One of the issue's supporters, and a life-long resident of Sunset, Trinity Lutheran Church's Reverend Sam Cruz, told the Brooklyn Eagle that he doesn't remember these stores from his early years, and he thinks it began to build up when Guiliani "cleaned up" Times Square. I'm not sure about those claims, but he does point out something I'm quite sure is true about the many sex/video shops in working class Sunset Park: "You don't see them doing this in Bay Ridge, and they wouldn't allow it in Park Slope."
