Calvin Klein Cools Billboard -- Slightly

    The new -- and improved? -- billboard at the corner of Houston and Lafayette streets seems to be offending fewer people.

    Ah, sweet relief.

    Now, passersby in SoHo won't have to look at the billboard of that threesome involving nearly naked young models. It's just a hot girl dripping wet in a red bikini.

    Calvin Klein switched out the billboard near the busy intersection of Houston and Lafayette streets after the billboard caused a mini-uproar last week.

     Many locals complained about the topless young female model lying on top of a bare-chested male model while she was kissing another bare-chested young man. A third open-shirted slab of beefcake lay on the floor in front of the couch the other three were on.

    The new one keeps the sexy theme, while toning down the heat.

    "I think it's a good thing," neighbor Rae Vermeulen told The Daily News.

    Added Rebecca Edmonson: "This is a lot better than the full blatant threesome they had before."
