Why does Utica suck

As an outsider who lives not too far away from Utica, I've gotta ask, why does that place SUCK SO BAD?

To the average person like me, all I ever hear out of Utica is "X number of suspects arrested in murder case" or "----guy arrested for rape" or "shooting, death on X street."

Are all you Uticans just jaded and calloused towards the severe crime rate there? Or am I making a big deal out of nothing? Coming from a town that hasn't had a murder in a decade and a handful of assaults I find it strange that it's so common to hear about a giant gang fight or shooting taking place only 15 minutes away.

Are your police ineffectual? Do Uticans refuse to reign in gang violence because they don't think it's a priority? Or are you comfortable with random murders because they're happening in the 'hood and not on your fun little idyllic corner of that slightly ugly city?

Please do respond, am very interested in your thoughts.

People in Utica are seriously retarded and or brainwashed believing in an idea that all sorts of great aspects come from the city of Utica.

Examples-

1) Saranac Beer - This beer is not good, its not quality, it's one of the worse beers around. But for some reason people consume it because it is brewed in Utica and for some reason that makes it good.

2) Criminals/Scum Bags/White Trash/- Whatever you want to call it. Utica is a place filled with a cesspool of so many worthless scum.

3) Utica Events - Are mostly based on drinking - Saranac Thursdays, Boilermaker, St.Patrick's Day.

4) No Jobs (This is true for anywhere) but come on...College students are spending big bucks to get degrees to work at places like Apac.

The City is just a mess.... Pot holes, broken down buildings, streets filled with prostitutes, criminals, thieves, etc.

Took me about 1 minute to write this all out so I dont care about spelling and grammatical errors. The point is made Utica needs to improve and its going to take some time. There are some fine points that Utica does have. Many historical places, great food, Utica Zoo, Museums, etc...

but bottom line is Utica is a disgrace.

It comes from utican upbringing. That weak excuse for a human quality that says "I'm a proudass moron oootican hear me complain whine and roar!" Just to talk shzzzt to to someone else hahahaha! They teach them that if anyone sees their pile off feces and laugh they are jealous or lowlife. Life works on the whose loudest plan and standards don't exist for most uticans. Anything will do! The place needs an incest investigation I think most of them are inbred. This much stupidity in one place must be genetic for sure. Have sympathy and humor them. Encourage the rants! Let them cry it out.

Technically yes the truth hurts. OUTSIDE of your local area however they call it "lack of standards". Make the adjustment. It hurts but there is a brighter day to admitting and acknowledging the problems.

I use to live in Utica. Many years ago it was a very nice place. What brought alot of the scum that linger now was the closing of state facilities that housed many of the mental and crimanally insane. York street mental facility housed those sick people and then they were let out on the streets to be monitored but alot of them procreated and then that turn into generations of insane people also how many state prisons can there be, that have closed and where do those ex-con end up with their families in tow? Surely the state can't take care of them all. Alot of the politicans have their hands min each ohters pockets so look at Utica now. Truely sad what it has become. I'm glad I moved..

Utica Sucks because all the politicians are corrupt all they want is to fatten up their pockets and not really help any 1 that lives there.they say they will do this and that but all it is is smoke and mirrors.they know from the get go that they seriously cant make the promises that they say that they can if you elect or reelect them.politicians take a pay cut already and forget about that stupid roundabout that is just a waste of tax payers money and put the money were it belongs.and that is fix the stinking streets an the sidewalks so people can walk on them and drive on them instead of trying to avoid the pot holes and busted up side walks. an help clean up the city instead of just driving around and making it look like you are actually doing some thing. every 1 needs to take pride in utica to make it more viable to every 1 no matter who you are or what business you represent. this includes all politicians too.

Utica sucks because this city has been allowed to deteriorate. People in Utica seem to be wearing blinders and can't see what things are like in the rest of the world. They all think that riggies and tomato pie are all that matters. Standards are so low that what would be considered marginal and unremarkable anywhere else is elevated to a higher status. The city looks like a garbage dump. Just get off the Thruway at the Utica exit and you will see sidewalks on North Genesee St. that are overtaken by weeds and grass that hasn't see a mower for over a year. Nobody in Utica cares, and this is why it sucks!

Donít take this wrong, but what you are basically asking is; why is your life in the city different than my life in a small rural community. The answers should be obvious.
