‘Kike Barber Shop’ Not Exactly a ‘High Holidays’ Kind of Place

by

When our very own Steven Thrasher was out in the field recently, he happened across this place, a barber shop in Jackson Heights, Queens on 91-19 37th Avenue. Somehow, it didn’t seem appropriate to note over the Jewish High Holidays, for some reason, which isn’t at all evident from the signage, if you can’t tell.

Who knows where the inspiration for the name came from — a call went unanswered — though they have a MySpace page (“Single, Aries”) and one singular Yelp review from Jeff O.: “I am amused, and offended.” Sounds about right.
