General view of Platinum Pleasures in the Hunts Point section of New York.
A shuttered South Bronx strip club could go from stripper poles to pews if one pastor has his way.
Platinum Pleasures, the last remaining strip club in Hunts Point, has shut its doors — but in lieu of lap dances, a neighborhood pastor wants to turn the former jiggle joint into a place of worship.
Pastor Reggie Stutzman of the Real Life Church inside shuttered Hunts Point strip club Platinum Pleasures. Stutzman would like to turn the former jiggle joint into a house of worship.
“A place that wreaked havoc in many ways could become a place of redemption,” Pastor Reggie Stutzman of the Real Life Church said of the club, where a “For Sale” sign was hoisted last Friday. “We want to put something there that the community can be proud of.”
