It's time for another report from the frontlines of the men's hip barbershop wars. The last skirmish, back in August, brought West Coast chain Rudy's to the soon-to-open Ace Hotel at 29th Street and Broadway. Now, Elizabeth Street salon New York Shaving Company goes one better by opening a second branch in the lobby of Le Parker Meridien at 56th between Sixth and Seventh. Standard hip men's salon perk: The barber chair is from the early 1900s. Less standard perk: They're offering lockers where you can store your shaving accoutrements. Given the new location's proximity to much-loved burger joint Burger Joint, we think New York Shaving Company might have won this battle.
