2011_08_boxersnyc.jpgHell's Kitchen NIMBYs are up in arms over the expansion plans of Boxers, a gay sports bar that would like to open a second location in the neighborhood. The neighbors' big beef is that the expansion site is near the Sacred Heart School and adjacent to a playground used by elementary school kids, with one neighbor calling it "disgusting." Boxers may subdivide the space to remain compliant with the 200' rule, and the bar has started a petition to build community support. [NYP]
