We’ve been walking by this Harlem barber shop sign on 116th Street for years, and I finally remembered to grab a photo. It’s for a salon on the ground floor of the Malcolm Shabazz Mosque. There’s something about it that draws you in from the language of “Your” in the old-school font to the letters that have been replaced over the years, it has a welcoming vibe unlike the bland corporate signs of today. Plus, it just looks damn cool.
