Review of Utica, New York


Utica
Star Rating - 6/23/2006
Lived there a while, wanted to get out, jobs were limited, always talking about economic developement but never attracted anything... not much to do there, I have been gone for 2-3 years and they have added new stores/restaurants but not much else. sales tax at one time was the highest in the country at 10.25% on the dollar
Winters are long and cold normally
Loved spring, summer and fall, rolling hills and slower paced lifestyle
cheap housing and adirondacks are only 30 minutes north
