TROY-- Adult businesses are free to set up anywhere in the Collar City after a moratorium expired at the end of last month.

The City Council is working to change that, but could be up against the clock because one adult business goes before the zoning board in one week.

The porn shop wants to set up on Fifth Avenue, one block from the Boys and Girls Club and Saint Augustine's school.

Just a few doors down, is a nursery school, and right across the street is the popular ice cream shop, Snowman's.

City Officials say the zoning board can deny a business if it does into fit the neighborhood character.
