It will cost millions and millions of doallars to raze those building. The newer high rise on Noyes is loaded with aesbestos per Tim Julian and can't be used without abatement. Its a shame. The old director's house was stunningly beautiful and justs sitsthere boarded up when it could have been released as a residence. Its just an example of the waste that accounts for the huge taxes in NYS. BTW most of the patients did not have their lives enhanced when they were turned loose without life skills or support.
God forbid the state actually spends the money on something well worth it. Filled with asbestos my rump. That land could be developed for so many different uses...give West Utica something to be proud of. This area is truly one of a kind, especially in the sense of who lives here. There's a bunch of chimps running this town in little tuxedos

Have some patience. Some buildings are coming down in 2014. Others need a bit more funding. NY just doesn't have 10,000,000+ to blow on abatement and demolition on one structure. It will come down at some point.

Yea there is definitely a lack of empty lots in West Utica!

We sure could use a nice empty field where a bunch of building used to be!

Hi,

I recently purchased a c. 1950's straight jacket from Utica Psychiatric. It is stamped in two places "South-Side". Is there anyone on the forum that worked there and can tell me anything about that? I am thinking perhaps it refers to the south side of either the east or west wings?

Thanks in advance!

I too would like to tour Old Main and the others. Does anyone know whom to contact?
Contact the Utica Heritage Society. They conduct tours during the summer of a variety of old and historic sites throughout the Utica area. Old Main was on their list for summer 2014. I remember reading that more than 1000 people lined up to tour the building.

Refers to the south side of the main building that would be the direction of south Utica.
Worked their from 1970- 1989
