    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.

    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.

    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.
