An American brand, Moscot has been a symbol of New York City style since 1915, when new immigrant Hyman Moscot started selling glasses on the Lower East Side.

The poster of giant eyes and glasses outside the original Moscot shop, on Rivington Street, near the Williamsburg Bridge is thought to have inspired the looming billboard in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’. These days the fifth generation of the Moscot family is in charge of the now global brand, still blending craftsmanship with a New York vibe.

It is seldom that you find real customer care these days but Whitby & Co went above and beyond in finding the right glasses and lenses for me.
The optometrist and dispensing optician were both hugely knowledgeable and took the time to try different possibilities to find exactly the right solution.
Ed Moore – Whitby & Co. Patient
My opticians for years, the service is 5 star, every time. The team is highly knowledgeable and takes great care in all it does. Great choice of specs, too.
Emma Mugridge – Whitby & Co. Patient
A friendly welcome and most important reliable service keeps me returning to Whitby & Co for my optical requirements and most recently I got my holiday jabs done in the same visit with their travel clinic.
Thank you. I'll be back.
