Father and son locksmith team work out of Manhattan’s smallest building
For one father and son team, the key to success is knowing everything about the lock.
Phil Mortillaro has owned Greenwich Locksmith since April 1980, making a name for himself.
Mortillaro’s locksmith office is only 125-square feet, making it the smallest in Manhattan.
“What I’ve learned about locksmiths is it’s very detailed and intricate. It’s just like life. It’s very similar and this is my trade. This was my salvation because without this what would I have done?” says Mortillaro.
For the past 38 years, he has opened more safes and made more keys then imaginable.
Mortillaro says his son Phil has picked up his trade and has brought technology into the family busin
