From Cheese to Cheeba: Former Little Muenster on Stanton Street Becomes a Head Shop

Posted November 28, 2014 at 6:20 am

Last modified October 14, 2014 at 3:49 pm

When it comes to overpriced hair cuts, 101 Stanton just ditched the faux rock vibe for something on the opposite end of the spectrum. The fashionista client. Seemingly overnight, Pimps & Pinups vanished, replaced almost immediately by a new salon called ‘Prema’. Fashion magazines now line the windows, but the storefront is no less ugly. […]
