About this Location

117 Orchard St.

Our current location at 117 Orchard Street is the original Cohen’s Fashion Optical store in New York City. Jack Cohen started the family business from a pushcart, among the famous Orchard Street merchants in 1927. The business flourished and moved into the current storefront on Orchard and Delancey Streets

For over 85 years, Cohen’s has been providing the Lower East Side community with professional eye care and quality eyewear – all at the best prices. We were the first optical store to offer fashion frames because our founding belief is that eyeglasses should not only help you see better, they should also make you look and feel better!
