New York Barbers Now Open at 153 Ludlow

Posted on: July 7th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

The hair replacement for the four-months-deceased In God We Trust is now a fixture on the block.  In this intervening transition period, 153 Ludlow Street was quickly transformed into a bare-bones barbershop simply called, New York Barbers. The chop-shop newcomer opened just after the holiday weekend.

A look inside the narrow store reveals an old-school set-up with three retro barber chairs.  Interior decor is defined by exposed brick under incandescent lighting.  The man in charge informed us that a cut and shave costs $25, which is definitely a far cry from the other five hair salons clogging upper Ludlow (Tommy Guns, Pimps & Pinups, Kropps and Bobbers, Cocoro, and Ringo).

And why not.  Take it away, Kubrick…
