Triple-A Coming Down

For Pizza Shop Expansion

Joe Vezza, one of Cooperstown’s top restaurateurs, at right, strides across the scene as the former Triple-A office building at Chestnut and Elm is being demolished at this hour to make way for the expansion of his New York Pizzeria.  The work is being done by Heroux Excavating.  Mayor Ellen Tillapaugh, who was observing at the scene, said Vezza’s plan for a PDD (planned development district) has been approved, but a few more village reviews may be necessary before the project goes forward. Vezza, who also operates Bocca Osteria and Upstate Bar & Grill as the village’s south end, plans to add a new entrance on the south side of the building, outside seating and more parking.
