I just read your article on the (Houston Street commemorative) pavers. I purchased one for my late dad, and it has been relocated. It was originally somewhere around The Palm (restaurant, 233 E. Houston St.,) that has been cut out for valet parking. The certificate states it was located in the 200 block of East Houston Street, North side, Section 7, and was dated Jan. 28, 1992.
My father’s name was Marco A. Botello; he grew up in and loved downtown. We would go sit on a bench and look at (his paver) while hanging around downtown. Can you give me an idea where on Houston Street to go look? Is there a way I can get a replacement or purchase another in his name?
