The company was founded by family patriarch Hyman Moscot, who arrived from Eastern Europe via Ellis Island in 1899 and began selling ready-made eyeglasses from a pushcart on Orchard Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, finally opening a shop on Rivington Street in 1915. In 1951, Hyman’s son Sol moved the shop to its current location on Orchard Street. The company, currently run by fourth generation Moscot siblings, Kenny and Dr. Harvey Moscot, has two stores in Manhattan, with their branded eyewear sold at stores worldwide. Their clientele includes celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Sting, Lance Armstrong, Kanye West, Kiefer Sutherland, Renee Zellweger, Denzel Washington, and Mary-Kate Olsen.
