After more than 75 years in the same location, the family-owned eyewear retailer has moved its Lower East Side store a few doors down to a larger, 2,200-square-foot spot (other locations are in the West Village and Brooklyn Heights). The space is decked out with original glasses from the 1930s, studded-leather chairs, wooden filing cabinets and a wall of photos paying homage to the family’s history. The majority of the house-brand glasses ($225–$290) are made for both sexes. Standouts include ombré frames ($225, with prescription sun lenses $255–$275), geek-chic styles with colorful lens options ($225, with sun lenses $255) and round, full-circle specs with exposed hardware ($225, with sun lenses $255), made famous by Andy Warhol and John Lennon. In-house optometrists are available for comprehensive eye exams ($120).

A loyal Moscot customer for 3 years, I couldn't be happier. Sure, the frames are a bit expensive (aren't them all?), but hey they take VSP insurance which is super common and it does really help. Their frames are gorgeous, they are constantly coming up with new modifications to the models, and the service can't be beat. 


Everytime my glasses feel a bit off, I stop by, get greeted by name and i'm not allowed to leave until the owner believes my glasses are perfectly and precisely adjusted on my nose. Feels like home.


Check them out! NYC staple.
