From vintage boutiques to a legendary eyewear shop, here's three stops you can't miss.

There's lots to see on this bustling street on the Lower East Side, from an iconic eyewear shop to a great vintage boutique.

Moscot
118 Orchard Street
This iconic eyewear brand has been on the Lower East Side since 1915 (they first started selling their glasses out of a pushcart on Orchard Street), and some of their frames -- like the Johnny Depp-favored "Lemtash" -- are just as old.

Daha Vintage
175 Orchard Street
This can't-miss desination for vintage in the neighborhood boasts everything from retro dresses to statement jewelry. The real win here, however, is the stupendous shoe selection -- most of the pairs are under $100.

Reed Space
151 Orchard Street
It's tough to define this lifestyle store in one sentence: The shop carries everything from sneakers to gadgets to art books -- all curated with the same smart-yet-quirky aesthetic.

Kaight
83 Orchard Street
One of the first truly stylish eco-boutiques to open in the city, Kaight's stupendous selection of handbags, dresses, and jewelry all still prove that earth-friendly garments don't have to look like hemp sacks.

Victor Osborne
160 Orchard Street
Fans of stylish toppers won't be disappointed by this well-appointed atelier, where time-tested techniques meet forward-thinking silhouettes.

Doyle & Doyle
189 Orchard Street
This vintage jewelry shop has become a destination for city residents looking for the ultimate vintage engagement ring or special-occasion bauble.

Self Edge
157 Orchard Street
The specialty here is denim, and the selection does not disappoint, especially when it comes to raw denim and hard-to-find Japanese labels.

The Tenement Museum
108 Orchard Street
In addition to the museum's spectacular tours, this neighborhood mainstay boasts an excellently-curated gift shop that stocks books, calendars, and more -- all with an LES bent.
