Dreams Park Owner’s Tree
Falls Across Susquehanna
COOPERSTOWN – Neighbor Chip Northrop, 17 River St., has alerted the DEC that a tree on the property of Dreams Park owner Lou Presutti has fallen across the Susquehanna River near its source, blocking the waterway.
In his letter, Northrup says Presutti, who bought the 10 Main St. mansion last summer, is refusing to have the tree removed. The neighbor is asking the DEC to direct Presutti to do so.
The tree is over the water supply intake pipe to the Village of Cooperstown, shown in the lower right corner, according to the letter.
There are two boats that moor down river that are blocked from their moorings. There is one launch and a dozen kayaks and rowing shells that are blocked in the river, the letter said.
“The tree is clearly a navigational hazard at Lake Otsego,” Northrup wrote.
