Music to your eyes
Moscot started sharing music with the neighborhood in 2004, when fourth-generation CEO Harvey Moscot started playing his guitar on a slow day at the family-owned eyewear maker’s flagship shop on New York’s Lower East Side. Music quickly became a tradition for the 106-year-old Moscot, which has since opened a gallery space alongside the Orchard & Delancey shop and hosted performances by dozens of established and up-and-coming musicians. COVID-19 temporarily silenced the concerts, but Sunkyung Park, Moscot’s global brand director, said the family is hopeful the bands will play on very soon.
