A bank in New York is taking some heat over its new dress code for customers and employees.

Cross County Federal Savings Bank wants everyone to remove their hats, hoodie sweatshirts and sunglasses before entering any of its branches in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens.

While the bank says the new policy is just a security measure, others think it's bizarre.

"I think it's crap," Brooklyn resident Michael Brown told New York TV station WPIX. "It doesn't make any sense."

Signs plastered in all branches notify customers of the policy, stating, "For the safety and security of all customers and employees, we kindly ask that you REMOVE hats, hoods, headgear and sunglasses prior to entering our facility."

An assistant manager who did not want to be identified at the Cross County Williamsburg branch told WPIX that many customers typically comply with the policy.

According to the New York Daily News, the bank's Queens branches have been robbed seven times in the past five years.
