Review of Utica, New York

Don't Do It!
Star Rating - 6/24/2007
I moved here from Albany. If ever there was a city that should be shut's this one. Utica lacks a capacity for growth. Clusters of "hopefulls" try to "re-vitalize" areas that are beyond repair. Unfortunately, this city is the by-product of industries that have pulled out, politicians that have tossed ethics in the trash, and an overall discouraged community. If passing through, take some time to enjoy Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute. Spend a few hours, then get the heck out. I'm leaving in a month.
The sad truth is, this city is begging for a merciful death.
