Platinum Styles, one of the barbershops Sheepshead Bites’ readers named among the neighborhoods’ best, has left the neighborhood. Sure, they were really part of Marine Park anyway, at 3032 Avenue U, and who needs them? Not us. We’ve still got a bunch of others to go to, especially in that neck of the woods where we’ve just learned about Joe & Bart’s a few blocks away.
Regardless, reader Howard S. sent in the above photo, letting us know that the writing is on the wall. Or, rather, the glass window, where the owners wrote that they’ve moved to 6001 Strickland Avenue in, blegh, Mill Basin. Mill Blegh-sin. Blegh.
