Last week, Failed Messiah noticed a sign in a Hasidic part of Williamsburg saying, "No Shorts, No Barefoot, No Sleeveless, No Low Cut Neckline ALLOWED IN THIS STORE." Naturally, the Post had to check it out, too! "When a Post reporter visited Lee Avenue in a sleeveless dress, some store owners stared at her shoulders, while others refused to look her in the face."

While the city's lawyer Gabriel Taussig didn't think the signs were illegal (as long as they don't "impermissibly discriminate based upon gender, religion or some other protected class"), one Orthodox resident, Mark Halpern, summed why the signs were necessary, "We’re not concerned about the way women dress in Manhattan — but we are concerned with bringing 42nd Street to this neighborhood."
