If you want to know what people are thinking, really thinking about the issues:
"It's ridiculous man. All the murders and shootings around here," said Robert Cordell.
What better place to go?
"Some of the things we discuss in the barbershop is this mayoral race," said Ijustice Allah.
At New Creations on Jefferson Avenue, there's no secret where the support lies.
"That young lady, and I swear I hope she wins," Cordell said.
No one here is shocked that Lovely Warren won the Democratic mayoral primary by such a large margin.
"I'm not surprised because you can't beat straight door-to-door, shaking their hand type of work," said County Legislator Willie Lightfoot, D.
While Warren and supporters celebrated Tuesday's win, incumbent Mayor Tom Richards conceded a race that, by most predictions, he was supposed to win handily.
Richards, who attended a ceremony marking the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, wasn't about to play Wednesday morning quarterback.
"We did a lot of work and as I entered the last day of the campaign, I was very satisfied with what we did. Beyond that, we'll see," said Mayor Richards, D-Rochester.
Then there's the issue of pre-primary polling. The last poll, issued by Siena just before the primary, had Richards, not Warren, winning by a landslide.
"Well, it certainly doesn't look like last night's results point toward forgiveness," said
Siena's Dr. Don Levy.
Levy told YNN that the sample taken in the Rochester primary poll was not representative of the voters who turned out.
Some in the Richards camp think the polls contributed to low turnout among supporters, who thought the mayor had the race in the bag.
"I think it might have had a minimal effect, but again I'm going to explain to you that the poll was in this case not accurate is that one out of 20 chances of having a sample anomaly," Levy said.
"Well, I have to say that the Voice of the Voter poll was a head-scratcher to us," said Warren campaign manager Chris Christopher.
Christopher says the poll didn't reflect what people were telling Warren and her supporters.
"We looked at that poll, we took a gut check and we decided it was not something that would change our strategy, and it didn't," Christopher said.
"The people of Rochester didn't believe the poll," said Lightfoot.
The people, on Wednesday, spoke; at least those who bothered to vote. Fewer than a quarter of registered city Democrats went to the polls.
"We have to make Rochester one Rochester. Bring unity back into the city," said Ijustice.
Which brings another issue they talk about at the barber shop. How do you get people to feel like they're part of it all?
"We got a lot more work to do in getting out the vote and restoring people's confidence in politics," Lightfoot said.
