Make me look less trustworthy in Lower Manhattan

I'll be in lower Manhattan today (Worth St). Can anyone recommend a barber in the vicinity that does straight-blade shaving? I would like to get my regular mustache converted into a Bob Dylan-style pencil mustache. If not right in the neighborhood, a reasonable subway ride away is ok. Thanks!

Alternatively, they do a great razor shave at Chelsea Barbers at 23 and 9th.

Best answer: There's a barber who does straight blade shaving in the Fulton St. subway station. I think you enter off of Fulton and William. There's a sign above this subway entrance. It's downstairs before you swipe IIRC.

Long have I desired to go into the Fulton St. subway place...but even if they are technically unisex I think I might stick out a little. Glad you enjoyed!
