Building Headquarters

Construction Underway On Route 28

You may have noticed construction underway in Hartwick Seminary across Route 28 from Cooperstown Commons.  It’s the new headquarters of Tickled Pink Barbecue, operated by Chris Doucas, Town of Hartwick.  Son Lucas Doucas, inset right, was at work this afternoon,  along with Lucas LaRusso, who’s helping with the construction.  A Tickled Pink store is planned on the site, featuring smoked cheese and other delicacies.  Started in that pink school bus on the site of nearby Barnyard Swing, the Cooperstown Dreams Park attraction, Tickled Pink is now purveying its barbecue via four buses and three trucks.  Lucas said the hope is to complete the project in a couple of weeks.  (Jim Kevlin /AllOTSEGO.com)

HARTWICK – Emotional firefighters shared their worries about a proposed Hampton Inn & Suites’ four-story building with the Hartwick Town Planning Board this evening

Planning Board co-chairmen Alex Thomas, left, and Greg Horth, and Board member Meg Kennedy reflect on the firefighters’ inputs.

“I’m one of the ones who will be entering the building if something happens,” declared Chris Doucas, Hartwick Company #2 first assistant fire chief.  “ I think that what I have to say should count since I may die.  We have to worry about our families.”

For at least two months now, Hartwick firefighters have been voicing their concerns about the building’s height, and also about having to rely on a ladder truck from either the Cooperstown or Oneonta fire departments if the hotel is built that high and a fire were to break out there.
