5. Ideal Barber Shop

Ideal Barber Shop at 253-07 Union Turnpike has been cutting hair in Queens for more than 50 years. Run by brothers Frank and Jose Loccisano, and recently joined by Frank Jr., this barber shop is a prime example of great family businesses. “The neighborhood has changed a lot in 50 years,” says Frank. “But no matter who moves in, they’re still gonna need a haircut.”
