Watch as Wind Rips Moscot Sign from Building [VIDEO]

Posted on: October 31st, 2012 at 8:00 pm by

The wind was a force that Sol Moscot‘s signage couldn’t reckon with Monday night. Check out this video sent in by a reader and watch as the small sign visible on the top right of this picture is ripped from the building during the storm winds that Hurricane Sandy brought to the Lower East Side. Luckily no one was on Delancey as this shrapnel flew across.

This might save Moscot some money in removal, as word on the street is that they are moving to 108 Orchard Street from 118 Orchard.

The sign ended up in front of Starbucks. This video was recorded around 8:30pm on Monday night during the storm I was able to upload this right before the power went out.

If you get impatient, it happens at 1:03 into the video, but watching the wind  inflict punishment to the swaying sign is captivating. And if you have any videos or photos to share, send them to us at tipline@boweryboogie.com.
