Award here - Cool town honor fuels increased interest
But some things are not so cool after all - Lawsuits, money issues have strained relationship between Berlin and its fire company
The contrast is interesting. Berlin. MD has always been an aspirational town since it was the location site for “Pretty Woman”. It’s on the way to Ocean City Maryland and has been a favored site for new couples moving to the area. It has a neat Micro-Brew ale house, art galleriesand all the other cool kid stuff that endears it to twenty and thirty somethings. It’s also in the one of the more rural and conservative counties in Maryland and the good 'ol boys who make up the majority of the Berlin Fire Department do not tolerate homos in their presence.
