A new barber shop will be opening in the neighborhood this weekend.

Andy’s Styles, the name of the new shop, is set to officially open at 83-11 37th Ave. on Dec. 8, and has been operating with soft opening hours in recent days.

The shop is run by Andres Cielo, a Jackson Heights resident and first-time business owner with over a decade of experience working in barber shops.

Cielo has secured a five year lease, and said he looks forward to owning a business in the area.

“When you first open, for any business, it’s not easy,” Cielo said. “I want my business to grow, to open more barber shops. There are a lot of people around here, so I wanted to give it a try.”

Among the barber shops Cielo previously worked for is Headz Ain’t Ready, just a little over a block away on 37th Avenue.

Andy’s Styles offers all barber services including shape-ups, haircuts, washes, shaves, and more. Hours of operation, which are currently in effect, are Monday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“Anyone that comes in here, ladies, children, men, everybody—I want to try to have them leaving feeling happy,” Cielo said. “That is my dream.”

Mr. Buckley 83rd street and 37th Avenue is far from Astoria. I think any legitamit business opening in any neighborhood is a blessing because it creates jobs and tax revenue.

JHeights my whole life

I am glad to see a new business opening on 37th ave. Good luck to you Mr. Cielo may you have man years in business. If you could survive years at Heads ain’t Ready dealing with Viejo and especially Vieja, you can do anything. Oh and thanks for bringing jobs to this town.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
