HARLEM, NEW YORK —  Popular leather goods and jacket store Delancey Leather has been caught in the cross-hairs of selling leather jackets littered with mold.    The Daily News obtained photographs from within the store of several jackets littered with mold;  water damage,  and mildew stains from being placed in storage for longer than required.

The store, per the female manager we witnessed forcing her employee to sell the jacket,  claims that the owners instructed her to sell the destroyed jackets regardless of the fact that they could potentially result in very serious health problems for people who buy them.   The following photographs were taken by one of our reporters who managed to gain access to the back of the store.

On multiple occasions, the employee and our reporter (who never identified himself as a reporter) attempted to inform the manager of Delancey Leather that  selling molded goods like that, is, in fact sort-of illegal and against  Health Department policies in New York City.

The store declined to comment  on Sunday, and, we were hung up on when  attempt to get a statement on this matter.
