Renowned worldwide for it’s iconic eyewear, MOSCOT is a New York City institution that began when Great Grandfather and family patriarch, Hyman Moscot, arrived from Eastern Europe via Ellis Island in 1899. A tireless entrepreneur, Hyman began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street on the famed Lower East Side of Manhattan. After amassing a loyal following of customers, Hyman opened his first retail store, MOSCOT’s in 1915. The family business at 94 Rivington Street steadily grew and the rest is history.
