Check out these incredible images taken by, photographer, Brian Rose, of the MOSCOT shop on Orchard Street in 1980 and again in 2011, from his book, Time and Space! Way back when in 1980, Ed Koch was the Mayor of NYC and MOSCOT had just one shop on the LES. Now in 2011, Michael Bloomberg is the Mayor and MOSCOT is a global lifestyle brand, sold at over 400 retailers worldwide.
It's amazing to see how much has changed in the past 30 years in NYC and at MOSCOT, and...how much has stayed the same! (we still see guys on skateboards and headphones in the LES daily!)
