Yay 60 million of your money wasted on retarded "I love NY Taxes and police state" campaigns.

Meanwhile children, NYS had lost 8 billion dollars because of cuomos stance on hydrofracking. And oh btw Remington is talking with 2 states already. Get ready for the wonderful news.

If your state was so wonderful then why is it shedding thousands of people and hundreds of businesses a year?

Nobody wants to work in a toilet state with more takers than makers in it. Good luck with the "sewage canal fests"!

I'm sure that 60 million in glossy union printed junk mail and stupid amateur videos will do "wonders" for cuomo's friends.

You though? You'll still be living in uptard ny pretending your are would be "desirable" as a major major tourist mecca if you could just figure out the right way to word it lol!

60 million laughs for you polyanna parasite police state people!!!

Stay there and go cry and martyr yourself and troll angry at someone who doesn't just laugh. Small minds like small times.
Please get ahold of yourself my man, anger seems to be your best trait and you're making no sense. Regroup. Wipe the foam from your mouth and start fresh.

Good day to you.

Was looking for an honest conversation about the topic. Didn't figure how many non thinkers and haters they would have on Topix. Honestly could care less about their opinion. Any one with half a brain or who can think outside of the box, please chime in.
These are honest opinions. Posters do not have to be in agreement with you to be honest. That being said, I agree with the Nay-sayers on this one. Unless the proposed convention center was in and of itself an attraction there is no reason to attract people. There isn't a broad spectrum industry that would attract a national interest in Utica. Any regional interest would only attract locals who are a few hours drive away. Turning Stone has its own Convention Center. They would not need to use Uticas. Utica has the prime opportunity to become a modern day Bohemia. You may have a draw to those outside of the mainstream in terms of arts and science. Property is cheap and plentiful. Organize a film and arts festival on par with Sundance and you may get the hipster crowd to come. The city will be overrun with coffee shops and boutiques but at least there will be a draw. Given the right support and financial backing it can become a major hub for independent artists. "The Nashville of the North," "Sundance of the East" "Indie-town." It won't take long for a recording company to realize that there is plenty of cheap real estate. Now that most production is web based, location isn't as big as a factor as it has been in the past. There is an abundance of empty shells of use to be buildings to house these endeavors. There are plenty of support facilities like hotels and restaurants. The Mohawk Valley serves as a perfect setting for films and photography to be shot. The seasonal variations serve for year-round sustainability.

Thank for putting together insightful thought. Also, it's ok to disagree like you are. Your the first person that gave an alternative idea. My problem is with the others that trash the area just for the sake of trashing.

My point on Saratoga was 25 years ago they didn't have much going for them either. The quote was you could fire a cannon ball down Broadway and not hit a soul. It's a fact.

So,some argue let's not put up a convention center because we having nothing going on. They say we need an attraction first. My point was they couldn't get people to visit their city. After they put up the convention center,it became great again. Investors took risks and bought buildings. New hotels have moved in. A great source of tax revenue. Restaurants opened up. Retail stores opened up. People moved downtown. We don't have to copy that. However,we can do something similar,even better. We must try.

Face it Saratoga STILL has little going for it so holding that up as some inasane proof just makes you look smalltime and shortsighted.

Look nobody is buying you fucking losers a "convention center" so you can all squander every dime on friends and family and they run it into the ground like the rest of utica.

You people don't quite live up to the minimums. Try "Can Redemption Center" without it ending up a felony bribery or bid rig scam. You have no attractions, and a "convention center" isn't going to hgappen.

I can just see who benefits from "convention center" there LOL!

You people squandered every chance no more have been offered in years. People don't want to come to the most unsophisticated prison land hellhole. You can't compete with the real sophisticated world and real people who know what an consistent attraction is. You don't build you hotel in the middle of nowhere with no draw and expect people to show up. You people are perennially stupid and simplistic to the Nth degree nobody cares or want's anything to do with your mini police state parasitic tax world there. You all wanted it this way and voted for the cesspool life with Hillarys and Cuomos and Destitos now shut the fuckup, sit there and rot. You people accept and PUT UP with the lowlife parasites and "master plan" bullshit. Nobody cares to help those who are too stupid to see their "big ideas" are dreams that belong to successful cities and people. Uticans always want, demand, or failing that LIE that they are the "biggest and bestust" but don't earn it themselves and rarely know how to proceed once they are dealing with something bigger than "Domenicos McSteak House".

Stick to what you know best uticans. NFPs, Prisons, Jails, layers of public service do nothings and rehabs.

What part of "What is without merit are your claims that Utica or Oneida county have all this great stuff going for it. Sorry footrace and rehabs don't cut it.

You just can't handle cold hard facts. It's you who seems angry I enjoy telling you about yourselves. No need for anger. Wipe your own mouth. Facts won't change just because you label the messenger angry. Maybe this is the "stellar hiwatt brainpower" fail that put you people there.

You can't accept the truth about yourselves without going ballistic. Crying and blaming the world for cny's sad lot won't change it but that hasn't stopped you losers from trying the last 40 years obviously.

Ape kills for 32 dollars, what jobs the rash losers have.

A city teenager told a judge Friday that he and four others, who met up outside a Family Dollar store after they ambushed, robbed and stabbed Takim Smith, discovered they only got $32 in the deadly set-up.

Keith Ferguson, 17, one of seven teens charged in the February robbery and murder of Smith at a Corliss Park apartment, said the five of them wore masks when the robbed Smith. He said stayed just inside the apartment's front door, acting as a lookout while the others robbed Smith. One of the teens allegedly stabbed the 21-year-old.

Most uticans can't even speak without looking like ignorant retards the instant they open their parrot holes.

It truly is all they know. I would really like to see them in a negotiation process.

Typical utican " well you're a loser and your fat wh ore mother is on welfare so go give a rim job to another black you homo".

Most people that post negative would be miserable no matter where they lived. Have only heard one person that didn't like the idea offer others. Interesting,that says a lot about the others. Probably, because they have such little lives and offer nothing towards society or their community.

Also, still want to hear the 60,000 question from the haters. Why do you live here if you don't like it? If you don't live here,why are you on Utica Topix. I am waiting.

You know who's against it? The slum lords because they profit off the scum. Maybe it's the downstate government because they want us to build more jails instead for their scum. Look at peoples motives of why they would not want this.

Your wrong about the feast we get bus loads of people from Canada and all over the north east that go to Cosmo & Damiano.

So,my answer is good old family fun. The feast is one thing. We can build on it with others. I don't have all the answers. I can't do this alone. I know we had soccer teams from around the world play in a tournament in Proctor Park last year. I need help with people thinking outside of the box. The status quo is unacceptable. It would be nice to hear more suggestion instead of more ridicule.
