Upper East Siders are getting their fix at last. Now, they can go directly to a new, local branch of iconic eyewear brand, Warby Parker, without passing ‘Go’ or rather, 14th Street.

The new store is at 1209 Lexington Avenue. “The space was formerly Lascoff Drugs, an iconic pharmacy,” Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal divulged to New York Observer. “Anyone who has lived in New York in the last 90 years knows it. When it was available for us to lease we got so excited!”
