Jaspers Hair Salon Closes In Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

Tomorrow marks the closing of another longtime Sheepshead Bay business: Jasper’s Hair Salon on Avenue U near Ocean Avenue. The stylist is closing shop after more than 55 years (some say 65) in the community. Fare thee well, Jasper.

    The photo is there, and the link from here leads to the photo. But its not showing up on this page. You may have to grab the link again. One of my contacts fixed the barrel distortion last night and I updated to that version. So if you got the URL before 1AM it may be different than it is now.

    Fixed! Thanks for the photo Lisanne. Apparently, when you update a photo to Flickr it changes to file name, so my link was incorrect. No matter, I’ve saved it to our server this time. By the way — I liked the barrel distortion on it. For some reason most of the “flaws” in photography attract me. Barrel distortions, vignetting, etc…

    My camera often causes a barrel effect. But this is the first time I’ve ever seen a curve in the middle. I kept a few where the distortion was so extreme that it was interesting.

    I have no idea why they have to change to the URLs to the weblinks when the photos are updated. It creates problems like this when photos are updated for various reasons.

    That’s too bad. I pick up a lot of old ladies from that place and drive them home.

    Meanwhile a new Hair Salon has opened on the corner of E19th and U. And a new Healthfood store too.

    I’ve been meaning to take pics for you Ned in case you wanted to mention the two new businesses but keep forgetting.

    I took them a few weeks ago but because I had a lot of trouble with the barrel effect I held them back. Since I had to stand in the west bound lane to get that shot I wasn’t going to tempt fate again.

    Could have shot from the other side but the traffic too often gets in the way on Avenue U.

    All my pics I take from my Iphone, I don’t really see an issue with people walking past in the shot. Just shows how busy Ave U is.

    The Healthstore finally opened this week so your photo on that would be out of date. :-p

    Man, now I want Trios.

    The cars going by are the problem. They make my field of vision shift and I can’t focus the camera properly.

    Trio’s has the best along Avenue U. Though all of them between Coney Island Avenue and Ocean are fairly good. But I have gone out of my way to eat at Trios during non-school hours. It’s very popular with students of St. Edmunds. You can’t get in there sometimes.

    The Chock Full O’ Nuts didn’t go over with the kids, and its gone now.

    They had good waffles but their food was too expensive.

    By the way, my boss just got a whole mess of new coupons for the car service. Walk on over and if you ask nice you might get some.

    Chock Full O’ Nuts used to be reasonable at one time. Before they closed up the first time around they started getting too expensive for what they were selling. But they had an excellent date nut bread. I’ve never found any that compared to what they made in the 60s and 70s.

    Which car service are you wprkin for? I’ve lost track of what car services are even around these days. A lot of the ones I remember are long gone.
