This corner could be co-named “Sol Moscot Way”
It’s not just Beastie Boys Square; the Lower East Side street co-namings continue to roll in. Likely to the chagrin of the transportation subcommittee of Community Board 3, which is trying to regulate the number of these applications each month. Now MOSCOT wants in on the action.
According to the CB3 calendar for February, the iconic eyewear company is seeking to co-name the southeast corner of Orchard and Delancey Streets as “Sol Moscot Way.”
Seems strange to pick this corner, though. Shouldn’t Moscot Way really be instituted north of Delancey? After all, the original pushcart back in the day became a brick-and-mortar at 94 Rivington before relocating to 118 Orchard in 1936.
MOSCOT moved to 108 Orchard Street (southeast corner) last May, as we first reported.
