Upper East Siders turned out for a joint celebration last week -- honoring long-standing East Side businesses and celebrating Our Town’s 45th anniversary.

Councilmember Ben Kallos read a city proclamation saluting Our Town and the businesses being honored. For most of 2015, the newspaper profiled businesses that have been open at least as long as the newspaper,

Those businesses were applauded at the Mt. Sinai event, and each of them received a copy of the illustration by John S. Winkleman that accompanied their profiles in the paper.

In addition to Kallos, honorees were also toasted by Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and state Sen. Liz Krueger.
