I always had a hard time finding Utica until they built this sign. Now I can just look for the bright red sign in the sky and I will find my way to Utica.
Thank you! That's what the region has been missing all these decades! Problems solved! Lol

I don't understand the design and why it took so long for the designer to come up with it. I think the arched scroll work is supposed to represent windows? I dunno. My feeling is that it's not high enough, the angle is wrong and it sits in a place that doesn't really showcase utica. It's like here's utica folks, some trees and grass, you don't see downtown, or genesee street until before or after you see the sign. I think a better place would have been up on roscoe conkling park, or just put it closer to north genesee street and thruway. Both places people could see it from the thruway and expressway, and it would showcase utica's downtown behind it... probably better than where it is now. But what do I know, I'm just a struggling undergrad trying to pay off my heaping college loan debt making less than 21k a year. Thanks UC, Thanks UTICA for the great opportunities.

Sorry bro. Do your best to get out of those "progressive" welfare states where the schools and news lie and make up "sports dreams" and people spend their time on ridiculous pursuits.

This sign is bad in many ways. Its too small. The location is bad. The lights on the stand look haphazard and are brighter than the actual sign. What is the point of this sign? Is it to say that Uticans are stupid to the point where they need a light up sign to find their tiny little city? Its just a bad idea.

It should only be a matter of time until the geniuses at WKTV can get some "made in China" replicas of it. Then they will have a four hour long telethon where they will give them away to anyone who makes a donation to the "Wipe Out Utica Face in your lifetime Foundation".

The people that run this city is why Utica sucks. The sign is in a stupid location even if they do put in a marina that area, it won't be ready for a while. On top of that, the percentage of tourist traveling by the canal in NY state is such a small percentage to go after. The only thing people are going to think while passing through, is wow what a small sign. Utica really is the gateway to everything better in upstate NY.

Why are there so many stupid people in Utica? I can't understand why I am constantly running into all kinds of idiots whenever I'm there. When I'm in Syracuse, it is just the opposite. Most of the people I deal with in Syracuse are relatively smart and well educated. When I come to Utica, all I deal with are morons that can't even speak in complete sentences. Its a massive contrast. As for this sign, it is disgusting. Nobody with common sense would ever propose building such an atrocity. It has to be the dumbest and ugliest thing that has happened in Utica since the built a roundabout in the center of a ghetto. These people just don't seem to understand what they are doing.

I agree with you but I would substitute the word ignorant for stupid in your statement. I just believe that most of the population left in utica isn't aware of the outside world anymore. Their world literally exists between the herkimer and oneida thruway exits.
