Wirth Watching: Astor Place Barber Shop


6/17/2019 – Craig Wirth, back in 1983 was a feature reporter for a New York television station. Long haired hippies were returning to barber shops which was news.

The trendy Astor Place barbershop in the East Village of New York City was a tourist spot, hundreds would crowd in to watch people get spiked hair– mohawks… and other haircuts that were strange for the day.   

Craig got a chair by the window and got his hair died orange and silver and spiked… and entertained those who walked by and gawked at him getting his hair cut.
