Our Town Thanks You

OTTYparty_AA_0226_cover1The OTTY Awards have become an annual tradition anticipated by many in the Upper East Side community as a celebration of what makes the neighborhood great. (See the Letter to the Editor by Betty Cooper Wallerstein on page 14.) OTTY stands for Our Town Thanks You – they are an opportunity to show the entire community’s gratitude to the people who work tirelessly, selflessly and often thanklessly to improve the lives of their neighbors and the character of their neighborhood. Our group of honorees this year includes the City Council members whose districts combined cover the entire Upper East Side, as well as a people who have contributed to the neighborhood in less visible but incredibly important ways. It’s sometimes easy to forget that when you talking about a city the size of New York, you’re really talking about distinct neighborhoods that make up its unique fabric. For years Our Town has proudly focused on covering the important local news and community feature stories that matter to New Yorkers who call the East Side home. We’re incredibly excited to continue that tradition and expand the coverage of this great neighborhood.
