Why??? What reason?? Every time I stay here I am bombarded with an obnoxious wall of sound. It serves no real purpose. Step into the present and stop blasting that damn horn. It is archaic,annoying,and not needed in this day and age.

40+ years ago it made no sense to blast it at noon--makes even less sense now. But Utica is still living in 1970, so give them time.

Or perhaps what you are hearing is the noon whistle at the brewery.

You could have fooled me. Utica looks like it's stuck in the 50s, it's houses are untouched since the 1800s, and the entire region looks like a bombed-out war zone.

I think it's entirely appropriate that they still do air raid sirens here.

The fire departments still use screaming horns too there. Apparently news of the discovery of radios and cellphones hasn't reached Utica.

FTW YALL: Oh btw, in spite of making light of your situation, I know how you feel. I lived two years in Clinton, near that damn firehouse with their siren drills and tests. Very loud, very annoying, and I never got used to it.:-(

You don't hear that infernal siren/ horn being blown multiple times a day from the fire house??? EEEERRRRGH!!! EEEEEERRRRGH!!! EEEERRRRGH !!!! It is so loud and annoying. One more unnecessary headache. I think it is just to keep people edgy. Can't see any other purpose.
