Ottati house


Ottati house
Originally uploaded by Niel's Eye.

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.

I've always wondered. Did you find out if the house is indeed your great grandfather or great uncle's? I drove by it today on my way home from LaGuardia airport and decided to Google it once and for all. I can't find much online. Any details you have about the house or its origins would be interesting to learn. Thanks!
