Hyman Moscot started selling eyeglasses from a simple pushcart on the Lower East Side at the turn of the 20th century. Little did he know that four generations later that pushcart would be transformed into three retail locations, nor that his grandchildren and great-grandchildren would become experts in eyecare and eyewear. While MOSCOT may have grown considerably over the past century, it remains true to its roots: it is a family and community business, focusing on quality design and service, and it carries a selection of classic, elegant styles. Its timeless eyewear reflects the artistic sensibilities of the creative community surrounding the original Orchard Street location, and it has brought those sensibilities to its locations on West 14th Street in Manhattan and Court Street in Brooklyn. In addition to its iconic eyewear, MOSCOT offers comprehensive eyecare; each location has a full lab on the premises and offers routine exams, treatment and consultations. After more than 100 years in the business, MOSCOT has reached an unparalleled level of expertise in eyecare, perfected innovative and sophisticated designs, and established itself as a leader in the New York eyewear community.Show lessRead more
