Everyone knows it's a dump. Simple bitching won't fix it.

The question is what can be done to correct it? Begin by voting out the greedy and self serving political infrastructure we have now. Every one of them has to go.

Bitching won't fix it, but it'll help others that look at the area to not make the mistake of moving here! I wish I had that warning about the area, and now I kind of stuck here!

Everyone in the state knows Utica is a dump. It's not a secret.

However, due to being a dump, things are reasonably cheap compared to other areas. So, its a tradeoff. Live fairly well on less money, or be broke all the time and live in a nice area.

Do us all a huge favor and leave the area. Go somewhere else and rip on that place. Utica has plenty of people that like it here. Like any other city/town it has pros and cons. People like you only see the cons and tear it apart because somehow it makes you feel better. You obviously have nothing better to do other than try to talk down about this place. Has a lot of positive things to offer.

I'll start...

Low cost of living. You can buy a beautiful home and a large parcel of land for a fraction of the price you can buy it elsewhere. More outdoor activities than you can name. Reasonably priced college education.

Do I need to go on? I will...

I've obviously proven you wrong.

it is so funny to me how bored some people are that they literally have nothing better to do than talk about how much they hate utica and how everyone else MUST agree with them. I live in utica and love it. I make very good money, probably more than the people bitching about utica. I love going fishing not even 15 mins away, I like takin my boat out on oneida lake, I like flying rc model airplanes at highland airport on top of albany street, bowling, bars, pool. It's all I need, what more could someone else need, someone to wipe their ass for em? lol I dont get it what can you do other places that you cant in utica, name one thing.\

The reason for the low cost of houses is because the high tax rates work to drag down home values. If taxes were to be lowered home prices would rise but that will not happen since this is NY and upstate will continue to decline with Utica leading the way down.

There really is no list of benefits to living here. Even this nano building is being put up by the state on speculation and it comes with the bribe of no business, property or employees income taxes. If this were a growing region action like this would not be needed. This will work to keep our current taxes high while keeping up the false hopes that have been used by the politicians for years.

And at the end of the day you still respond and defend. Also you still live there. When property values are low that means one thing...no one wants to be there!!! Lol
