Arthur’s Barber Shop has closed

Several readers (h/t simcitymayor) have let us know that Arthur’s Barber Shop has closed at 34 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square. 

Readers reported showing up at Arthur's in recent days only to find the gate down, with the inside of the shop emptied out... there also isn't any information about a new location. 

Thanks to Steven for the photo

He tried very hard, nice guy. Maybe it would have worked out, but trying to build a client base in what is basically now a transient neighborhood is challenging. Especially when the government wants you out of business anyway.

More about govt restrictions than a transient neighborhood. What about all the long time rent stabilized residents? Everything bad is blamed on transients.

Gates have been down for weeks. For a few days there was a sign up that said: Call Arthur and gave a phone number, but I didn't write it down and now it is gone. Hope he is okay. Nice guy. Fair price.
