Our tree-lined streets are populated with well-manicured homes. But what you really notice upon entering Melrose Park is the diversity of its residents.

The strip club sits in a neighborhood where young children and families live, where elderly nuns come to retire and young sisters come to deepen their faith. It is not a neighborhood where a strip club belongs.
