Each of Warby Parker's stores reflect their unique locales and their newest store on Manhattan's Upper East Side is no exception. Located in a space formerly occupied by Lascoff Drugs, it retains the original terrazzo floors, cathedral ceilings, and gothic windows in homage to the building and neighborhood. I got a sneak peek at the space and couldn't get enough of the history meets hipster vibe.
The new space boasts art by Maira Kalman, a photo booth, a pneumatic tube system, reading nooks, an honor bar, and two eye exam rooms. Another innovation unique to this location is The Reference Desk, a one-stop shop for inquiries, check-ins, adjustments, and more.
This week was the grand opening, so if you're in the area, stop by and say hi, chill out in a reading nook, or check out some new shades for Spring.
