Thank You for the OTTY Awards The OTTYs are a wonderful idea to encourage and recognize New Yorkers who take pride in what they do, how they work and their achievements, whether paid for or volunteered. And we can express our pride in them by supporting their names for OTTY awards.
Each and every year of the 29 years since I co-founded and have led the East 79 Street Neighborhood Association, I have met and admired a number of people whom I felt proud to nominate for an OTTY; and this year is no exception. I send names for each OTTY category of people who stand out from their colleagues in the way they think, relate, and demonstrate that they truly care about the business or residential community in which they participate. These are people who work the extra mile, take that extra challenge, do that unexpected, generous and often anonymous action that benefits many others.
