A Snip and a Snap

Al Criscillo was a barber on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg for 54 years.  Starting in the 1960s he offered a free photo with every first haircut, the result being a large archive documenting Brooklyn patrons through the years.  The resulting collection of photographs is currently on display at the City Reliquary Museum  where they are housed as part of the museum’s collection.
