This narrow eyeglass shop on the corner of Grand and Bowery in Chinatown doesn’t offer extensive eye tests, but still attracts locals with an array of designer frames. There are elegant lightweight frames (often rimless) by Lacoste, Vera Wang, Sferoflex, Elle, and Ralph Lauren, as well as chunkier styles like angular frames by You’s and Saki and more glamorous Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace specs with crystal details and logos. A smattering of kids’ frames and contact lenses are also available. Sunglasses come in the form of classic Ray-Ban aviators and purple-tinted styles by Giorgio Armani. But the biggest draw might be the price: The store typically offers a 20 percent discount on most frames.
