St. Marks Barbershop moves around the corner

St. Marks Barbershop has left St. Mark's Place. (H/T Steven!)

Albert and Co. have relocated from here between Second Avenue and Third Avenue ... to Cooper Square — specifically 13 Third Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.

The shop is taking part of the space that was previously home to HairMates.

With the move comes a new name — Ace of Bladez!
The departure means that 16 St. Mark's Place won't be a barbershop for the first time since the late 1960s.

Groovy signage for the Royal Unisex Barbershop is still visible on the east-facing wall.

Great news! Maybe they got themselves a lease. Their old landlord kept whimsically raising their rent and wouldn't give them a lease. That was the story I heard sitting one day.
