Officials in Great Neck don’t want you airing out your dirty laundry – or clean laundry for that matter.
The village board has banned the hanging of laundry on front lawns, making it a violation punishable by up to $1,000 and 15 days in jail.
Some residents say they never realized it was a problem.
“The whole time I’ve been here, I’ve never seen that. That’s a surprise,” said Martha Curtis.
