73 days until Spring. Um, brrrr…
Most excellent news: ONLY 11 days until the brand, spanking new Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals arrive! Whoop!
…the Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals arrive in 14 days and will have you looking better in no time. (But by all means…keep your resolution and go to the gym! Seriously, get up right now and go to the gym!)
Don’t get sunburnt this winter...wear sunglasses! Many of us dread the cold, snow, and in general, winter…but grey slush is the least of our concerns. Winter sun is just as harmful as summer sun…perhaps even worse…just ask Anderson Cooper! After failing to wear sunglasses while filming “Anderson Live” on the water in Portugal, Anderson experienced temporary blindness for 36 hours. Trust us and trust Mr. Cooper… sunburnt eyes are no fun, whatever season it is.

Did you know on board, in-flight air is drier than any of the world's deserts?! Relative humidity in the Sahara or Arabian Desert is typically 20-25%. Relative humidity inside most airplane cabins? 10-20%! Yep, that's right! It goes without saying (but we shall…) this is well below the preferred 50% needed for optimum eye comfort.
Dry air can cause Dry Eye Syndrome, which means itchy, burning and/or watery eyes, and even blurry vision, usually within two hours of boarding a flight, and worsening steadily as humidity levels continue to fall on long-distance, high-altitude flights. These symptoms do not bode well for watching movies, reading, or playing on the computer — your only distractions from the discomfort and general misery of flying in the first place!
No matter which class you're sitting in, our own Dr. Harvey Moscot has a few simple tips that will ease your dry eyes and keep you flying high this holiday season, including:
After 77 years at 118 Orchard, MOSCOT is crossing Delancey to 108 Orchard Street!

(Don't worry...you still look mahvelous!)
Please help us preserve all the great memories, and build our Timeline, by sending us your photos, anecdotes, appointment cards, letters...anything and everything MOSCOT Orchard Street related, from 1936, when Great Grandpa Hyman first opened shop, til today!
Gotta photo of the inside of our Orchard Street shop from 1978…WE WANT IT! Have a 1957 snap of Orchard Street with MOSCOT in the background…WE WANT IT! Been hanging on to an appointment reminder from Grandpa Sol…yup, WE WANT IT! Or always telling friends a funny story about the time Frankie, Marilyn or Harvey did you know what…WE WANT IT! You got it…WE WANT IT! Please.
