Neighborhood: SoHo, South Village 

Warby Parker is everyone's favorite mail-order glasses service, serving-up designer frames at affordable prices. But you already know this. What you may not know is that WP also happens to have four fabulous showrooms in New York where you can see their whole stock in person. These brick and mortar shops are staffed with helpful folks that will walk you through the order process and find a frame that's just right for your face. E-commerce may be the future, but nothing beats actually holding something in your hand before you buy it. — Nathan Reese
