According to Jim Tallman, Cooperstown Fire Chief, if you really want to know what’s good in a new town, go ask at the fire hall on Chestnut Street.
“Whenever I go someplace, I always stop in at their fire department,” he said. “I like to see what they’re doing, but I also ask for recommendations of where to eat and what to see. And people do the same here when they come in.”
