Boutique Hotel Opens Friday In Cooperstown
HISTORIC BUILDING RENOVATED

Boutique Hotel Opens

Friday In Cooperstown

All hands are on deck, including proprietor Perry Ferrara’s wife Cathy, foreground, as the Railroad Inn, the new boutique hotel at Railroad and Glen avenues, Cooperstown, prepares to welcome its first guests tomorrow evening.  Ferrara, in right photo with Cathy, said the first-floor rooms will be occupied Friday evening, and by next weekend – Hall of Fame Induction Weekend – all 22 rooms will be completed and filled.  Crews have been renovating the historic hops-storage facility since last October, which had been vacant since businessman Mike Manno bought the former Agway in 2009 and restored the exterior.  Ferrara, who has operated Cat Construction on Long Island for 30 years, said bringing the building back to life while preserving the historic ambiance has been a particularly satisfying part of this project.  Bob Holt,  at the registration desk, former manager of the Best Western in Harwtick Seminary, is managing the new hotel.  Helping Mrs. Ferrara in the top photo are, from left, friends Lorraine Banfield and Cathy DiResta, and Cassie Sawyer of Worcester.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Basset Cancer Institute Celebrates 300 Survivors

Basset Cancer Institute

Celebrates 300 Survivors

John Parks Sr. and Wanetta Daniels, both cancer survivors, were among the more than 300 individuals who came together from throughout central New York for a Cancer Survivor’s Day Celebration put on by the Bassett Cancer Institute June 4 at The Otesaga in Cooperstown. The annual event  was a sellout again as cancer survivors and their guests joined in the celebration of survivorship with the cancer treatment team and other staff who help patients navigate the emotional and physical challenges a cancer diagnosis entails. The Bassett Cancer Institute offers a nationally accredited, multidisciplinary team approach to cancer care. Since nearly all forms of cancer call for more than one type of therapy, Bassett’s medical, radiation and surgical oncologists work together as an even larger team focused on the needs of individual patients.
