I thought some people here might want to read this week's NY Times article about the recent proliferation of old style (?) barbershops . Quite a few of these places have been mention already in SF threads.

Full article Here:

=========
EARLIER this month, Tristan Chirico was trying to do some last-minute errands in New York before flying back to Jordan and his job teaching theater at a prep school there. The most pressing item on his list was a haircut.

His plan was to head into Manhattan from the friend's apartment in Brooklyn where he was staying. But then, right there on Smith Street, the main drag of Carroll Gardens, he happened across a brand-new barbershop, Persons of Interest, and decided to pop in.

It was a revelation.

"As soon as I saw the place, I felt this deep, inner yearning," he said. "It's very striking, with these red barber chairs and this fantastic photo-mural. And it's rare to see well-dressed, well-groomed men cutting the hair of equally well-dressed guys."

That's not really a trend....it's a generational shift...likely to be permanent.....and the snakes that've been raping them girls in the Sportclips, greatclips, supercuts, BoRics joints are MAAAAAADDDD. It's only a matter of time until actual barbershops are as prevalent again in white/brown neighborhoods as they always have been in black neighborhoods.
