It's the look of realization that no matter which Italian you vote for, they're only going to spend your taxes on hiring their family, not paving the roads.

Many people who CHOSE to stay here do so because they have no goals, aspirations or hope for any better kind of quality of life. They make pathetic excuses and blame others to feel better about why they stayed here. Family is no excuse people. Everyday people leave family behind and cross the ocean for a better quality of life. Stop making excuses or move. Choice is yours!

The backward quality of Utica is obvious to anyone who does not live there. From the unprofessionalism of their local news (WKTV), the deteriorating condition of the entire area, unmaintained streets and parks, and the overall low quality of life, Utica is an example of what happens to a city when nobody cares and nobody in charge has a clue. You can always spot a Utican who is visiting in Syracuse by the way they act and by the characteristic "Utica Face" that has become their trademark. I would rate Utica as a "4". Not totally bad, but still far off from where it should be.
A 4? Really? So you're one of those cup half full guys hmmm?!

@enough:

True, but there are a few that are stuck in crappy jobs that can't help them afford a rental truck. Thus the Utica Face. Their parents aren't going to help, because they are the overly protective and/or the positive-Utica-idiots and wouldn't want their kids to ever leave this wonderful rust-topia. Thus the Utica Face. They can go post their resume but no technical company will hire a SUNYIT graduate, and companies aren't willing to pay moving costs anymore. Also, they're competing against a plethora of computer scientists and engineers from better schools. Utica College is worse in that they refuse to certify or license their students after they graduate (for teaching, nursing, physical therapist, etc)

Utica Face. It exists and weighs heavily for some.

Argh... sorry I missed the "CHOOSE to stay here."
And yes, blaming it on parents is lame.

That's funny but the fact is most everybody is inflicted and have come to terms on how the rest of their life will be played out.

short answer: despair is no excuse for the rest of your life off. Get to work!

That's the problem. Utica has ZERO places to just go to work unless you enjoy low paying retail to serve to the people who have real jobs. There's ZERO production there...there's ZERO manufacturing there...there's ZERO chances of any of that. There's also ZERO talent pool of educated people looking for employment there so that leads to a ZERO chance of building some Mohawk valley life changing chip plant to come and save the day. Lol. What you have is sh it chains swarming in...providing some "hope" and some low paying jobs while those chains prophets are shipped out of the region. How people do not see this is mind numbing but I guess what's left in utica isn't the best of the best. Lol

But apparently you have ample time beret Utica at all hours of the day. I'm not sure what you're problem is but it would be healthy if you got over your obsession.

It's quite comical to read the short sighted utican responses to my posts. "All hours of the day"! Lol

Can Utica Face be disguised with makeup? How much foundation and eye shadow is needed? What colors work best?

"Utica Face" would be a great name for a local Utica rock band!
