BP Diaz to Odell Beckham & Von Miller:
“Thanks for visiting The Bronx…but try a better place than Sin City!”

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. has written a letter to NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr., wide receiver for the New York Giants, and Von Miller, linebacker for the Denver Broncos, regarding the pair’s recent, highly publicized visit to the notorious Sin City, a strip club located in the South Bronx.

“I would like to thank you for your recent visit to the great borough of The Bronx,” wrote Borough President Diaz, who doubles as the biggest New York Giants fan in The Bronx. “I appreciate that you both took time out of your very busy schedules to pay us a visit. However, you could have picked a better place.”

In addition to the letter, Borough President Diaz also mailed Mr. Beckham and Mr. Miller copies of the 2016 Bronx Visitors Guide (viewable at http://bit.ly/2gCMkwn) to inform their future visits to the borough, and urged them to reach out if they wanted to see the many great things The Bronx offers visitors to the borough each and every day.

“I would love to show both of you gentlemen there is more to The Bronx than establishments such as Sin City, where you risk losing more than your valuables,” wrote Borough President Diaz. “If you would like to see what The Bronx is really about, and visit numerous establishments that our residents are actually proud of, I hope you will take me up on this offer.”

In August, Borough President Diaz issued a letter to the New York State Liquor Authority urging the agency to revoke Sin City’s liquor license. That letter can be read at http://on.nyc.gov/2auXQWe.
