This bi-level barbershop has kept generations of Gothamites well-groomed since 1913 as grandfathers and grandsons alike return for haircuts that suit both ends of the age spectrum. Wood paneling, brown leather-and-chrome barber chairs, and shop heirlooms (like shaving mugs for long-ago regulars Joseph Pulitzer and George Patton) complement present-day amenities, like a sound system playing pop-rock tracks. In a well-crafted mix of macho and metrosexual, a guy can have his whiskers shorn away while a manicurist tends to his cuticles. The classic shave is both a nostalgic link and spa-like treatment, with steaming towels, emollient, layers of shaving cream, and a platinum blade that’s likely to keep cheeks baby-butt smooth and chase pesky beard shadows well into the next day.


Spit and polish shoeshines are available for $5.
