Whats up with the skid row smokers out there in the front each morning around 9:30am? Looks trashy and I would never bring anyone there after seeing that mess.

Their not allowed to smoke anywhere on the grounds so they walk to the street. And I agree, looks very unprofessional.

Really? Get over it people smoke and would you rather us smoke outside all arounnd the building.. I think not. Just because we smoke doesn't mean its not a good nursing home. It is one of the best in utica, with a waiting list. So sorry for you.

I was there visiting for a high level individual possibility to stay and decided after seeing the clan of dirty smokers in the front turned us right off. Not the most pleasant sight to see upon driving in and the staring by the smokers is something that is not needed as you enter. I especially love the ones who sit on the curb like a homeless person flicking their smokes in the road. We will pass on the place since we are not smokers and find that the employees doing this in front makes the facility look terrible. Lutheran home is much nicer.

not for nothing...but I am a person and I don't smoke so do say "people smoke"...the ones who smoke are the filthy, smelly, annoying ones who do smoke. I don't want our family members being around smelly individuals like yourself and don't think people can't smell it on you and your clothes.

I may just call the facility and suggest that the smokers smoke away from the facility all together and not stand in one location all looking like dirty smelly bums. Makes the place look real bad and I am sure you think otherwise if you are on of the dirty smokers.

Kissing a man/woman that smokes is like licking an ashtray. Just saying.

Probably same person. Some people are never happy. They complain about smoking inside the workplace so smokers are made to go outside. Then that's not good enough so they have to go off the property. Tobacco companies target young people but most of the anti-smoking ads are done by children now. Cough, cough, mommy I don't feel good. I think the neighbor 2 doors down smokes. Now target the landlords to ban smoking in their apartments. Don't forget in bars and now parks. Albany is laughing at all the anti-smokers who help them collect all the exorbitant taxes to balance the budget. They don't care about your health! They want the money! Go after the Indians and ban e-cigs. They all take away from revenue.

If every smoker in NY quit smoking today, NY's economy would be in the ditch by Friday...

They will not let employees smoke on campus. secondly your not to drive.anywhere on.15 min breaks. And lastly the business across the street do not want cars parking and smoking there... due to it being their.property... that goes for all shifts. So the only location is the.curb. yes it does give masonic.a.bad name but people have habits and hoping to get a smoke room outback like they had long time ago :-)
