  • TBT: Our First Store in 1986

    Wow–these were the days! Digging through our archive we found a picture of our first store in 1986 that was on 595 Broadway in New York. We were the first themed, fashion store on Broadway, with a real T-6 Aircraft inside. Now you can visit the aircraft at the American Airpower Museum in Long Island and we've moved uptown to 15 W 39th St. Anyone else remember the old store?

  • History of Statue of Liberty

    An intrinsic component of America’s great heritage, it is with pride Cockpit USA recognize Sunday 28th October as the anniversary of the day the United States welcomed the iconic Lady Liberty to its shores. It was on a foggy, rain drenched day 126 years ago that France’s gift of friendship was celebrated with a ticker-tape parade and a 300 strong fleet of boats sailing to Liberty Island to welcome her. An emblem of freedom, the Statue of Liberty soon became the official beacon of a better life and new possibilities for arriving immigrants. Awesome in her grace and stature, this 151 foot tall copper sculpture designed by Frédéric Bartholdi has received millions of visitors from around the world and appeared in countless Hollywood movies along with inspiring ‘The New Colossus’, an iconic poem penned by Emma Lazarus which now stands on a plaque at the feet of the Mother of Exiles herself.

    The New Colossus

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
    With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

    —Emma Lazarus, 1883

Now we want to tell you all about the Brooklyn Flea Market. Located in the same place, but every Sunday, the sprawling bazaar combines a select few of the food vendors of Smorgasburg (so worry not if you require refuelling!) but also offers up endless amazing vintage finds and antiques.

  • Cockpit USA on Bekele

    Earlier this month saw Queens become awash in color, music and culture as the Pride 2012 celebrations marched into the neighborhood. Amid the delicious local fare, vibrant characters and rainbow colored flags was a performance not to be missed from the superstar songstress that is Bekele. Dressed in a leopard print catsuit with a Cockpit USA leather vest on top (similar one here!) and flanked by two male dancers in our very own camo trousers, the New York singer set the stage alight with her stunning vocals and crowd pleasing songs. Check out her website here!

  • Team Cockpit Make Strides Against Breast Cancer

    It was on a sunny fall morning when Team Cockpit USA joined thousands of other sprightly New Yorker's in Manhattan's Central Park for this year's annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraising walk. Led by our favorite girl, Whitney Adele Garlick, Team Cockpit USA raised hundreds of dollars and completed the five mile scenic stride across Central Park in an impressive two hours. Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, the charity event raised $60 million dollars with the help of almost 800,000 walkers in 2010 alone. With breast cancer being the No. 1 cancer that affects women in the USA, the walks are imperative in the effort to save lives and there's nothing more we take joy in than a Sunday morning stroll, especially if it's for a good cause!
