Local Politicians Help Celebrate Leon’s Fantasy Cut and Newkirk Plaza

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and Councilmember Mathieu Eugene came out to Newkirk Plaza on Saturday afternoon to congratulate Leon Kogut on his barbershop’s 100th anniversary, and to help celebrate the overall Plaza makeover.

If you missed it, you also missed a peek at the candidates for the mural in the Newkirk Plaza passageway. We’re checking in with the Newkirk Cares Collaborative to see if there will be another chance to vote, but until then, check out the photo of the contenders in the slideshow above. UPDATE: Voting has ended, and we hope to share the winning entry soon!
