Barberz #0

March 15th, 2015

The original! When I passed this barbershop on a walk in Coney Island one evening back in 2009, I was astounded by the sheer number of Zs on the sign, not to mention the K-for-a-C and the missing H: FADERZ — KUTZ WIT SKILLZ. The name burned itself into my brain and eventually led me, a couple of years later when I started this five-borough walk, to decide to keep a tally of all the barbershops whose names feature a Z in lieu of an S.

I couldn't remember exactly where Faderz was located, however, and I was worried it might have gone under by now — so I was ecstatic to find it still in business after all these years!
