Fantastic piece of local lore ~

Driving on 6th Avenue you can not miss the wall-size mural dedicated to Gabriel Rene Cruz on the south side of Grand Central Barber Shop. Hector Cruz is one of the barbers there so I am guessing that Gabriel was Hector's father or grandfather. I LOVE that the muralist included a razor and scissors with the portrait. (Is it just me or does he look like a very stern Omar Sharif?)


  1. Ha, it does look a bit like Omar Sharif.

  2. Actually gabe was his nephew n he died when he was 17 :'(
