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).
