Several years ago I was drivng on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway and I saw a house near the house where my father grew up in Greenpoint. And the house had a name on it, the name was John Ottati, which was my Grandmother's maiden name. I belive that this building once belonged to my great grandfather or a great uncle. It is kind of neat finding a building (a landmark really) that was once in your family.
