Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports that many residents were present at a public hearing on whether to allow nude dancing at the Highland Tap in Roxbury. Jones reports that the Highland Tap has featured nude dancing for almost ten years. He adds that the police and critics believe that the bar is attracting drug traffic and other vices to the area. Jones' report includes footage from the public hearing. Bruce Bolling (Boston City Council) and William Celester (Deputy Superintendent, Boston Police Department) speak out against nude dancing at the bar. Celester talks about criminal activity and underage dancers at the bar. Jones reports that local business owners say that the Highland Tap is a good neighbor.
