The Business Journal

Aug 01, 2013 · Albany is the 7th most unfriendly city in the country and the 13th unfriendliest in the world, according to a survey by Conde Nast …

Because of people like you in Clifton Park. Makes your area one of the most unfriendly in the world. Those in glass houses should not be throwing stones.

So this is what these losers have to lie to themselves about to feel less ridiculous?
Utica makes people desperate and delusional being stuck up in that retard backwater with all the liars and braggart welfare job people.
Not sure of the motive of people on a mission in trashing a city that they don't live in. Either they personally gain from it or they had a bad experience when they lived here.

Well here is two videos that talk about how things are now. Things are changing for the better and smart business leaders are investing again.

Here are their stories of why they want to open a business up here. In Utica, NY.

I've lived here for over thirty years, and its only getting worse. I see no hope for things getting any better for Utica. It has not reached bottom yet, it will only get worse.

YAY! More minimum wage corporate jobs that push out smaller mom and pop businesses that give Utica a unique identity.

I work in downtown Rochester and it sucks. There is a reason people don't visit "downtown" areas in cities. Too much traffic, no parking or expensive parking. High crime areas surrounding the business districts. Lots of pollution (i.e. noise and chemical).

Utica died for many reasons. Until those reasons are addressed, the area will remain the way it is.

The hockey team will be the first to go. There is simply not enough demand for hockey. If our business leaders were smarter, they would have brought NASCAR in.

Crime is definitely up.

A couple of weeks ago I visited a business in the Oneida Square area as I have done for years. I talked to the owner of the business and he stated that the area has gotten worse. Violence is an almost daily thing. Drug dealers are actively selling drugs in the open. The police are just overwhelmed.

Last weeks news.

In Oneida Square, Bob Donnelly, owner of City Gym, is moving just down
the roundabout to 1301 Oneida St. Donnelly currently rents the building
on Oneida Street, where his gym is located, and he believes moving down
the block will help improve the entire neighborhood, he said.

“We want to become an anchor for the area,” he said.

He also plans on expanding, since his available space will more than
triple from 6,000 square feet to roughly 20,000 square feet.

That expansion will include a tanning salon, vitamin shop and juice bar.
Donnelly owns 13 properties in the city, mostly apartments. He
purchased the site for $7,500.

Bringing back commercial properties, such as 1301 Oneida St., can
change the complexion of a neighborhood, said Gene Allen, the agency's
marketing director.

“No one else has anything like,” he said.“It can become a destination
business for the area.”

Also, the hair salon that was in this building rehabbed a vacant building next door. It looks beautiful.

I eat at the two Spanish restaurants on Oneida Square. Also,an awesome place for pizza and Dunkin.

You have Pratt University/Munson William Proctor Museum,Fountain of Elms,Utica Public Libary and the Refugee Center all within one block. I know young professionals that live in the brickstone. I live six blocks from there and love the area and my older home.

The only remaining problem is the convenient store and one certain owner named Joel Grimaldi that does nothing with his abandon property.

That area is coming back.

I went to Rochester on a recent trip with my family on the way to Darien Lake. Stayed at the Hyatt,went to the Museum of play and hat a great dinner in Cornhill Landing. It was a great experience. People are visiting and moving back to cities. It's a national trend away fro the suburbs. Not sure where you get your information.

Utica may have had it's problems,like most rust belt cities when many manufactures left. Now,it different. Utica is reinventing itself. With Cyber Security,Homeland Security and Nano coming next year. Jobs that pay 80,000 to 90,000 dollars a year. Plus,all the new investment by the business leaders in the video.

I lived in the south. Texas and Fla they sucked. I am glad I am here where I can breath the air. Close to the Mountains with some of the best recreation in the world. Stop being so negative. Stop and smell the roses. Life moves to quick to be miserable.

I don't care what fake BS news that you print, the area is getting worse despite the fact that investors have been dumping money in that area for years.

I actually witnessed an assault down there. Some hoodlums sucker punched a drunk. The drunk fell down and they took off. A few minutes later the hoodlums came back and punched the drunk again. This time he fell backwards and hit his head HARD against the concrete.

At that point I was going to call the cops but my friend urged me not too. He owns a business down there and the hoodlums might think it was him that called. Earlier in the week they called the cops on a drug dealer that would not stop dealing drugs in the parking lot. They warned the drug dealer several times to go somewhere else but the drug dealer ignored the demands. Finally they called the cops.

The cops came and checked the drug dealer out. Of course he didn't have anything on him so they could not arrest him. After the cops left he went into the business and threaten to burn the place down.

There has ALWAYS been drugs, violence and prostitution in that area. However the drug dealers usually kept to themselves and respected the business owners. The new batch are just crazy violent.

Okay, you VISITED the tourist areas. I HAVE TO WORK there. Here is my experience:

1) Leave early am.
2) Get stuck in rush hour traffic. It adds at least 20 minutes to my time.
3) Park in a parking garage. Get on elevator that smells like pee. Press button to reach ground level. Cringe at the unknown sticky substance that is now on finger.
4) Start walk that takes about 10 minutes in rain, sleet, snow and excessive heat. Real fun to do in business attire.
5) Ignore bums asking for money. Try not to step in their vomit and poop.
6)Walk up street that is terribly windy. Try not to get pooped on by the flocks of pigeons.
7)Go inside building. Wait up to 3 minutes with everyone else.
8) Get on crowded elevator with crop dusters and women that wear heavy cheap perfume. Try not to breath or suffer an asthma attack. Wait 3 minutes to go through the various floors.
9) Finally get to work.

Working and living in the city sucks.

You really could use a shot of reality. Yes, some people are moving back into cities, but thats only in real cities. Under the current state of affairs, that won't happen in Utica. You have to be certifiably insane, as well as asinine, to say that Florida sucks. My homes in New Hartford and Manlius will be displaying "for sale" signs in the near future. My home in Tampa won't be. Utica, and the surrounding areas, as well as Syracuse and its suburbs, pale in comparison. Upstate NY in general is terrible, however Utica is the absolute worst city in NYS.
