Bowery Boogie reports that a barber shop has permanently taken over the former In God We Trust space on Ludlow Street. After the edgy boutique's LES outpost shuttered this past March, the retro, "bare-bones" New York Barbers temporarily moved in. They're now staying put with three old-timey chairs and nostalgically-priced $25 cut and shaves. Perhaps the spare overhead and affordable services will keep this shop in business longer than others in the nabe? [Bowery Boogie; Previously]
