Do you get excited when you see new building construction happening in the city or town of Oneonta? I certainly do and always want to know what's being built. It was not long ago that I noticed that a building project was happening behind Wendy's on the Southside of Oneonta.

The construction project of the Starbucks shop was approved by the Otsego County Board of Representatives on April 5, 2021, at their regular meeting and it wasn't long before construction began on the site behind Wendy's. The best part for you night owls is that it will be open 24 hours a day.
