Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help. Any donations are much appreciated to keep otsoNY online.
