Clifton dentist at it again, brings back mannequins for Fourth of July display

CLIFTON -

A dentist from Clifton who's caused some controversy with a display of mannequins in his front lawn is back at it again -- a little over three weeks away from the Fourth of July.

Dentist Wayne Gangi’s display outside his office on Grove Street made headlines earlier this year with scantily clad mannequins that ended up with one neighbor being charged.

Gangi has been decorating his property for years, and for Easter, the dentist dressed up the mannequins as Playboy Bunnies, he says, just to have some fun.

His neighbor who lives across the street, a woman named Desiree, took it down one afternoon, saying she was sick of looking at it, adding it was inappropriate for Easter.

"I think people are just kind of use to it by now,” says Rob Chavez, of Little Falls. “I don't mind it. I think it looks funny, and people need a little more laughter in this life I mean, c'mon, take it easy everybody, relax."

Now, his once-controversial Easter display is Uncle Sam for the Fourth of July.
